Hi Mrs. Payal,
Thankyou for posting your query on healthcaremagic.com and giving us this opportunity to clarify your doubts.
Well, from what you say, sounds like your daughter had a viral diarrhoea
, which subsided symptomatically with the antibiotics. But what the antibiotics do, is that they kill the good bacteria in our gut(stomach and intestines), which normally help us in digesting particular foods. Due to the absence of these bacteria and also due to prolonged sickness, our gut wall becomes unprotected and lacks certain good bacteria and enzymes.
This bacterial flora can be replaced with what is called the probiotics. The best home made probiotic is curds. Allow her to eat curd rice or curds in any form she likes. Kindly give no medicines to stop the loose stools. Once the gut heals, the loose stools will stop by itself. Meanwhile, maintain her hydration very well. Try giving her ORS
. You have to dissolve 1 packet of ORS in 1 litre of boiled and cooled water and give her sip by sip throughout the day. One litre water to be used within one day, discard the rest, if remaining.
Hope your daughter will get better fast and these measures that i have told you, will help you to keep her healthy. Take care and stay healthy.
