Why does a child has diarrhea and vomiting having tested positive for reducing substance?

Hello Doctor. My son is 2 ad 1/4 yrs old . He s getting into motion problems since December 25 ,2013. He took ofcomac (for a week), Ofcomac Forte &bifilac (for a week) , Metrogyl(5 days ) and z&d (2 weeks) .After the above treatment he became normal . 3 weeks later one night he got vomiting. He vomited 13 times n 3 hrs followed by which he was given Vomiset injection and got vomiting controlled . But had vomiting sensation and motion problems started again. He again took the medicines Propanz,zoxakind-o,Progurt, ascezin (10 days ) . After the above treatment he was normal for a week only. Now again he s stuck up with loose motion problems . i have give motion culture ,complete and a test for reducing substance. The report says 1.positive(trace) for reducing substance 2. Acidic and occasional pus cells 3. So far no pathogens found in culture ( still a day more for the culture result to come ) I am very confused and worried concerned about my son s health . why does he get this problems often? We are pure veg and his diet is a normal one for the past yrs ( milk ,idly ,dosa ,chapati,biscuits , fruit juice and chocolates ) . i dont give him outside food . I didn t try any new food except i had given a try for the horlicks and bournvita for adults occasionally . Kindly provide your valuable guidance . Will he have any internal problems ? like intestine problems ? Thanks in advance for providing ur valuable guidance .

He might be having lactose intolerance.avoid milk and milk products.put him on a very bland diet like rice ganji, vegetable soups,sooji or oats porridge and plenty of oral fluids like fruit juice etc give him Darolac sacchets-one packet mixed with pre boiled and cooled water twice a day for one week,if vomit persists give him emeset syrup 5ml twice a day before food for 5days,since u had already given antibiotic let us not repeat.avoid chocolates and cream biscuits for a fortnight,he will be fine
