symptoms of intestinal infection.

My 13 month old had loose motion since two weeks, though she feeds well. We did stool test today, and the color was greenish and had plenty of pus cells in it. Does it indicates an intestinal infection.

Hi,
Plenty of bacteria never indicates infection.
Plenty of pus cells usually indicate infection of the gut.
Thanx

Hi
Welcome to health care magic
     most common cause of loose motion is viral or bacterial infection ,presence of plenty of pus cells confirm it beyond doubt.
