Dear Deepti, 7 days of diarrhoa is a long time for a child. Is she on medication? Please keep her well hydrated and rested. If you do not see any improvement, you may consult with the doctor again. Also, please read the following blogs on some suggestions for cases of stomach bug and sehydration. Here are the links 1- https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/gastroenteritis-in-children/222 2- https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/dehydration-in-children/212 Hope she feels better soon.

Hi Deepti! u need to chk whether the medicine u r giving is effective or not. 7 days diarrhoea mite leave the child dehydrated.. so u need to give her ORS after every half an hour. dont give plain water, the child mite vomit. or u can give shikanji, limca etc. to ur child. Pls chk the kind of food u r giving to the child. It shd not be solid nor it should be rich in fiber like salads, papaya, etc, avoid apple juice, milk etc. or any other eatable which is concentrated with calories. It shd be soft n easily digestible by the child. U can give her khichri,banana, curd,boiled rice water, pomegranate juice as home remedies. If ur child is on breastfeed please increase the intake it will help boost her immunity n cut down top feed. As u c improvement slowly u can move on to semi solid and solid diet.
