Child having frequent loose motions, no relief with medicines. Could it be due to teething?

hi, my son is having loose motion since the past 5 days, he has been passing loose stools for about 5-6 times a day. i did consult a doc and he prescribed Nutrolin B syrup and Vitamin C drops. i have been giving him meds on time but there has been no improvement. i have been feeding him arrowroot too, but i don t see him recover. could you please suggest anything else i could do? could it be because of teething?

Thanks for your query.
Your child is having enteritis which is usually viral in nature and takes few days to settle.
Most important is to maintain hydration.
Continue with nutrilin B.Give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each stool,coconut water,mashed banana,boiled potato,curd,rice porridge.
watch for features of dehydration like lethargy,decreased urination,increased thirst and in case you find any get him evaluated by pediatrician.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless.
