Take 1 glass water 1 table spoon sugar and pinch of salt .give her that solution little bit every half an hour. Till she completely recover then stop the whole medicine. Give her fruit, juice, soup. And she will be fine. If condition is more severe do consult doctor. Well take care of her. Bye.

Emergency Medicine Specialist Dr. R.A. Singh's  Response
Thanks for writing your query.

Advil syrup contains antiinflammatory drug Ibuprofen which will help in relieving pain and fever.

Loose motions can be due to infection of the gastrointestinal tract.
You should get her stool examined for any infection. Antibiotic can be started if needed according to the reports of the investigation.

You should try to maintain her hydration.
Give her light meals.
If her problem persists, get her examined by a Paeditrician.
I hope this is helpful to you.
