Hi....., consider oral rehydration salts for electrolyte loss.... Most acute diarrhea in infants and young children is due to viral gastroenteritis and is usually short-termed and self limiting... Antibiotics are not routinely prescribed for viral gastroenteritis.... Infants and children with acute diarrhea also can quickly become severely dehydrated and therefore need early rehydration... Kindly consult your pediatrician for further evaluation and treatment....
