Suggest treatment for nausea, dry-heaves and diarrhea in an infant

Hi my 21 month old toddler has had diarrhea the past 3 - 4 days. He has been refusing to ingest anything besides milk and rice cereal. If I try to get him to eat anything else he gags and on one instance puked. His poops have been gray/white/tan in colour as well. He has been generally happy and playful though. Does this just sound like a stomach bug or could it be something more serious?

If a similar patient comes to my old as u have mentioned that child is playful Nd happy, it's nothing serious. you can give Ors sachet mixed In 1 liter of boiled water Lukewarm within a day, Sporolac sachet two times a day and zinc 5 ml at night. as far as the motions don't contain blood you don't have to worry.

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

Take care
