Hi Neelakshi,

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Let me correct you for one thing. Motion sickness is the term used to indicate the feeling of vertigo or giddiness which some will encounter during traveling in a bus or flight due to which they may vomit or become giddy.

So I think you want to express the child problem of having loose stools as I can understand from your history.

You can add gnorm sachet in 5 to 10 ml water and it can be given orally. It is a probiotic.

And the mainstay of treatment in diarrhea is to maintain hydration by giving sip of oral rehydration fluids such as Pedialyte.

Hope I have answered your query.
