Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically Lacto B is a supplement that contains probiotics. Probiotics can indeed help maintain the balance of normal flora in the intestine and can indeed help prevent diarrhea, especially diarrhea caused by the use of antibiotics. This supplement is recommended for use in children 1 year and above, so if your child is still less than 1 year old, you should consult with your doctor before giving this supplement to children.


Diarrhea in children is most often caused by rotavirus infection. In general, rotavirus will heal by itself without requiring any treatment within 3-7 days. Make sure you provide enough fluids for the child while still having diarrhea. Look for signs of dehydration and take it to the hospital immediately if you find any signs of dehydration. Children who are having diarrhea are also advised to take zinc. For children over a month, it is recommended to take zinc1 tablet (20 mg) per day for 10 days. Zinc can help repair the digestive tract mucosa damaged by infection.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
