  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    This appears to be a case of diarrhea. Usually diarrhea is viral in nature. Important aspect in managing mild cases are maintaining adequate hydration with ORS or home available fluids (rice or dal water, coconut water, butter milk and plain water). Encourage intake of healthy foods and avoid sugary foods like juices, glucose water etc. Milk should not be stopped unless lactose intolerance is suspected. Giving zinc supplementation for 14 days is also strongly recommended.

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
