Child has ear infection and is on antibiotics. Has loose yellow stools. Normal?

My 11 month old daughter is on amoxicillin as she has an ear infection . She is having very watery loose stools that are yellow - is this normal? She is on day 2 of the antibiotics . She is also not drinking alot of her normal fluids, however I know that is common when she is not feeling well. Anything I can do to help her keep her energy up?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.This is drug induced diarrhoea.
Add a probiotic syrup till the antibiotic ends.She should get well.
If the diarrhoea continues then ask your doctor to change the antibiotic.
Meanwhile give your child lots of fluids and rehydrating solutions.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Your child is suffering from antibiotic related diarrhea which can happen with amox.You could give her probiotic like lactobacillus satchet 2 times a day while she is on antibiotics and keep her hydrated with fluids .Once her antibiotic gets over this diarrhea will settle down.
Take Care
