My son is 21 months old. He is suffering from very acute diarrhea. That is four to five times in an hour and frequent vomiting, four times a day from the last four days. We consulted a local doctor. He advised the attached prescription and stool test. As per him it is due to severe bacterial infection in the stomach, which is resulting in diarrhea. My son is not suffering with dehydration and his fluid intake is sufficient. He himself is asking for food, but due to frequent motions, he is weak and the rashes makes him irritated. Please give your suggestions. We are worried as it seems that medicines are not healing it in a faster way. He got only 5% relief in three days. Doctor said that it will take three to four days to become normal and stool test is also fine.
