Hello,

I think you need to try medication because sometimes it takes some time for the body to act on the medication given.

If you are so much concerned and if diarrhea is becoming worse, then you can get higher antibiotics and treat your child. Get a prescription for the higher antibiotics from the same doctor rather than changing doctors often.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana
