Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.F.
It appears that your child is having viral diarrhoea, it can be confermed by the examination of the stool. In spite of the treatment the motions and some times vomiting also continues for few days.
The main aim of the treatment lies in maintenance of fluid balance so that no dehydration occurs. For this you need to give him oral rehydration liquids, you can have them from market, coconut water or make them by mixing a spoon of sugar, and a pinch of salt to a glass of water and feed him frequently.
I advise you to consult a pediatrition for diagnosis and treatment.If there is marked dehydration he may need infusion of fluids.
Wishing him a faster recovery.
Best regards.
