Hi,I would like say you thanks because of your good question.
Brief answer:ZN 20 is a preparation containing 20 mg Zinc sulphate which is an useful mineral and electrolyte for human.Definitely ,this is a very good drug for the treatment acute watery diarrhea
Detailed answer: I see similar cases in my hospital.In the first meeting,I often advise as follows:
>Breast feed frequently
>Give oral rehydration solution (ORS
) after each loose motion
>Zinc tablet 20 mg once daily for ten days
Anyway,Zinc therapy reduces frequent diarrheal attack in children,boosts up immune system.
Please stay alert for any signs of dehydration(irritability,sunken eyes,depressed fontanelle,thirst etc) and any general danger signs like convulsion
,blood in stool
.If any sign is seen ,please contact with your local doctor.
Hope this helps you.
Wish your baby good health.
