Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Darolac is a probiotic sachet. Mix one sachet in 20 ml of water and give her one packet twice daily for 5 days.
Please avoid ibugesic at all costs.
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.

Thanks for your query.
Your child is having diarrhea which is mostly viral in nature and will subside in few days.
Darolac is probiotic and it is to be prepared in 5 to 6 spoons of boiled water and given 2 times a day.
In addition given oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool.

Wishing your child good health.
God bless.

Darolac sachet contains lactobacillus which helps in maintaining gut flora lost due to diarrhea.
You can give it by mixing one sachet in quarter to half cup of boiled and then cooled water. You can also mix it in milk.
