Hi..
I understand your worry. You need not panic regarding diarrhea in your child unless the volume is large or it's too watery causing dehydration or it contains blood. Depending on the availability in your country you can give her zinc acetate syrup 20mg dose either as a single dose or in two divided doses.It usually comes as 5ml =20 mg concentration. If you have doubt please verify with us before administering the medicine.
