Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
I can understand your concern.
The child might have urinary tract infection.The symptoms are all related to this condition.
If the child was on diapers there is an increased chance of having urinary tract infection.
Do a urine test after consulting your doctor and give him plenty of fluids.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Pediatrician Dr. Himanshi Kashyap's  Response
Diarrhea for more than 7days is either because infection has not got corrected or post diarrhea lactose intolerance .You will have to get him examined by his Docter who might at this stage run investigation to rule out infection.However if infection is positive then antibiotics needs to be given either orally or injectable form if your child does not accept orally.In the mean while ensure that your child is well hydrated and passing adequate urine.
Take care
