Loose motions

My boy is down with viral fever and currently on medications Rinifol-Z, Recofast, and Meftal-P, 2 days over fever under control but he has started passing motions from morning. Frequency is 15 mins roughly and qty is less though. Any medications to be added for stopping his motions Thanks

Hello. I have gone through your question. Main concern in any diarrheal illness is dehydration. Which has to be prevented by giving child ors solution. If there is blood or mucus in stool you will have to consult your pediatrician again, he might start antibiotics in that scenario. Also give dal water, rice water, sabudana kanji, or arrow root powder kanji to child. It helps in preventing dehydration as well as improved stool consistency.
