Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello sir/madam,
I am highly concerned regarding health of your child. Symptoms of fever, cold , cough and diarrhea indicates its cause is mostly viral . Stool routine report does not yield a confirm diagnosis in this case, same reports may be seen in various types of infections. Kindly get your child get examined again by your pediatrician. It is better to give zinc and ORS in this case and just be patient and give plenty of fluids orally. Do not worry , your child will be well soon. Thank you
