Thanks for writing to HCM

Reports suggests your baby is most likely suffering from colitis (intestine infection).It is due to bacteria.
Colitis is indicated by presence of bacteria and pus cells in stool.There shouldn't be any bacteria in stool.
Culture of stool should also be done.Antibiotics and Probiotics should be prescribed to your baby.
Baby should be given adequate fluids.

Hope I have answered your question.
Take Care
