Hi..
I understand your concern for your son. As you had already used Darolac there is no need for any further drug as it's very much evident that the cause of diarrhea is antibiotics. Give Darolac only for a maximum of 2 days as it's not usually recommended in this age group. You can give him zinc drops.It comes usually in the concentration of 20 mg per ml or per 5 ml.You can give 0.5 ml ( if 20 mg per ml composition) or 2.5 ml ( if 20 mg per 5 ml composition) once daily for a total of 2 weeks.Please keep the prepared solution in refrigerator. If you are breastfeeding him continue only that. If he's formula fed,do not change the product of the formula. Unless your son has any blood in stools you need not panic. If you have any further questions I would be pleased to clarify them.
