  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    As your child is passing 3-4 loose stools per day but you have not mentioned since when this is happening. Usual duration of diarrhea is about 5-7 days. Usually mild diarrhea requires dietary treatment as plenty of liquids (not sugary fluids), ORS and normal diet, breast feeding. Zinc supplementation for 14 days also helps in faster recovery.
    If diarrhea is lasting more then two weeks, it's termed as persistent diarrhea and requires further evaluation. So consult your doctor is it is persistent diarrhea.

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