good evening, 4 months old baby with above said complaints needs some other investigations and changes to be done- firstly get a stool culture and stool reducing substances done seeing the report we can plan further course of action. if giving bottle feeds , stop bottle feeds and teeters for the baby which are the major source of infection. if u r giving cows milk , that has to be stopped first. take care that the child dosent go into dehydration. till then u can be administering zinc drops, around 0.5 ml per day for 2 weeks, enterogermina oral solution , 1/2 tube once a day for 4 days, reviw with ur doctors with the above said report results.
