Hi,
you may call it dentitional diarrhoa. Dehydration is the serious problem in such condition. So, management of dehydration is basic precaution. In medicinal side use homoeopathic medicine - Podophylum 30 - 2 drops 3 hourly.
Pediatrician Dr. Diana Divakar's  Response
Hi dear,
well,regarding your child, i would advise that as long as she is drinking and retaining water, the quantity of loose stools is less, her urine output is normal, she is active and alert and there is no blood or sticky mucous in the stools, there is nothing to worry. Generally children have viral diarrhoea more commonly at this age.. Hence, antibiotics can be deferred. Lactobacillus can be taken preferrably in the form of curds rather than any medication. Diet should mainly contain rice based products, boiled apple, banana, moong dal, curds,etc. Her hydration should be of priority. U can also add a drop of lime in the ORS to add flavour and check if she likes it.....
