Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

The loose stools could be due to either taking antibiotics or due to infection.
A stool analysis may be done for evaluation.
Continue giving him bifilac.
Give him enough fluids and electrolyte solutions like pedialyte to keep him well hydrated.
I hope that answers your question.
