Hello,

Your child is having amebic dysentery disease. For that metronidazole is to be prescribed. It will help in killing amoeba parasite. Zinc sulphate help in diarrhoea case. So your prescription seems to be correct.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
