Sir, my daughter is six month old and she had diarrhea problem for about 2 months. Her feed was changed from mother breast to Zerolac ( Lactose free). But, after 2 weeks of feeding, now, she is having a shade of blood in her stool for 5-6 days. It is very minute. We got her stool checked. Her stool test for reducing substance is positive two times in 1 month. There is also a mention about E. Coli (segregated) I in culture report. Now, what should we do?
