Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
Probably your baby is suffering from infective diarrhea.
Whatever medicines are given are quite OK.
If you like you may add walamycin syrup in consultation with your doctor.
Usually the diarrhea subsides within 4-5 days.
If not get the stool examined for reducing sugars,
If positive avoid lactose containing foods and give Zerolac feeding for 1-2 weeks.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
