Thank you doctor,
When we feed him cow's milk, within minutes he passes stool. The frequency is directly related to the number of feed, say five times a day. And the quantity of the stool is proportionate to the milk. Yesterday he had a fever, but today the fever is mild. We are giving cow's milk by adding some sugar. The color of the stool is green, we give milk with a nipple. The hygiene is not good because we live in a very remote area. Please suggest the treatment and precautions.
