Small child, watery yellow stools, yeast smell in stools. Cure for symptoms?

My 2 year old has runny yellow stool that almost has a yeasty smell to it. He has never been a very good eater, but drinks a lot of whole milk. But now is not eating at all, maybe a few bites of food a day for the last week or so. We will be taking him to his Pediatrician in the beginning of the week, but looking for a little help now.

Pediatrician 's  Response

This might be a gastroenteritis- virus being the most common cause.

There are no magical remedies that will stop his stools immediately.
Be sure he drinks well.
You might give him plenty of water, ORS, vegetable soups, Rice based Porridge, Boiled potato, Banana and plenty of curd.
Avoid cow`s milk and fruit juices for few days as it might cause increase in frequency of stools. You may give him soya milk instead.

You may give him probiotic sachets- like Econorm- 1/2 sachet twice a day for 5 days.
If he has vomiting too, you may give him syrup Domperidone according to his weight.

Be sure he passes urine at least 4 to 5 times in a day.

If he is not drinking anything/ urine frequency is very less/ he is dull and tired/ you see blood in his stools/ he develops high grade fever- do not hesitate to visit the ER.

Hope my answer helps you.
Wish your son a speedy recovery.
