Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Your child is having dysentry. The blood in stool along with fever are suggestive of this.
We treat a case of dysentry with antibiotics, probiotics etc.

Infants vary in their response to medications. Is the pneumonia hospital acquired. Is she breathing fast now. Are there any retractions etc.

Please reply for further details
Hope this helps.
Take care
