Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety....history you have provided is suggestive of gastroenteritis...loose stools cause fluid loss and dehydration, so give plenty of water, juices,oral dehydration salts to replenish fluids and electrolytes...take your child immediately to nearest pediatrician for clinical examination and for assessment of fluid loss they will do the needful.
