    Good morning madam. sorry about this issue madam. the commonest cause of diarrhea in this age group is viral (rotavirus). other viral infections have also been implicated: ECHO virus etc. this diarrhea could also be bacterial in nature, it could also be due to feeding the child with foods that are way too concentrated that what the body can handle (osmotic diarrhea). the mainstay of management of diarrhea is ORS and zinc tablets. you MUST replace the lost fluids and give zinc tablets to help prevent further episodes of diarrhea. drugs might not be the first line of treatment. weldone.
