Hi,Thanks for query.
It seems that your son is having Acute gastro Enteritis giving him all problems.
Due to stomach upset he is not taking any food.
Continue the medicine and after control of infection he will like to take something.
Give enough water,electrolytes.
Give him fruit juices.
Ok and bye.

Pediatrician Dr. Richa A Agarwal's  Response
your child is suffering from gastroentertis

medication has been given for that only.
any illness do cause anorexia , esp smaller children who feel listless

do continue with the medication. medicines will not give weakness
do give ORS to your child.
you can try khidri, banana, curd. these are really helpful and help in fast recovery

take care
