Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query,
Your child seems having acute gastroenteritis due to infection or egg allergy.
Stop giving egg now and you can plan later, usually after one year of age with introduction of yellow first, followed by white after the age of 2 years if there is no allergy in a gradual manner.
Continue the medication as advised by a Pediatrician.
If motions persisting give stool for routine, culture and for reducing substances to know the cause.
Maintain hydration by giving ORS sips and monitir hydration.
Hope I have answered your query.
