Thank you for your query,
Your child is having Gastroenteritis may be bacterial or viral.
Continue to give oral rehydrating solutions and sporlac sachet as advised as the loose motions will take time to subside.
For fever you can give paracetamol in prescribed dose and consult your Pediatrician to assess the need for antibiotic and for appropriate dose calculation.
Hope i have answered your query.

Hello I have gone through the complaints. You have done a good job by giving ORS to your child. Your child initially had gastroenteritis and I think now it's turning to dysentery. The medicines can be better prescribed according to the weight of the child. What are all the medicines you are using is fine but I think they are not going in adequate dose. Zinc replacement is also needed for better control of loose stools.It's better you meet your child specialist. The only thing you can do is to monitor his urine output and give him adequate fluids.
Thank you. Good day

Thanks for your query.
Your son is having acute gastroenteritis which is mostly viral in nature and takes few days to settle.
I advise you to give oral rehydration solution after each loose stools,give coconut water,curd.banana,.khichdi. Maintain proper hydration.
For fever five paracetamol 6 hourly if fever is more than 100F..
Continue probiotic for 2 to 3 days,but i do not prefer antibiotic.
In case symptoms persist get him examined by a pediatrician.

Wishing your son good health.
God bless.

Hello dear..
The medicines prescribed by your Doctor is correct.
Pain abdomen, loose motion, fever & vomiting suggests your son might be having Gastroenteritis.
So...continue the medicines as suggested along with ORS.
Also add Cyclopam syrup 5ml twice in a will take care of the fever & pain abdomen.
Other than that give him plain, soft, non spicy diet..& maintain adequate hydration.
Wishing your son a speedy recovery.
Thanks & take care.
