Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Not only in children, there are actually many causes of diarrhea. Could be due to bacterial infection, virus, parasite, allergies, or the inability to eat certain foodstuffs. And one of the most concerned with diarrhea is dehydration or lack of fluids.
In your child's case, when diarrhea has recurred like that, one thing you can do is check your child's stool and see what organisms are there. If after checking your child's stools are normal, try to look at the food. Has your baby consumed milk or certain new foods during the last 1 month or not. If yes, then try to reduce the consumption of these foods.
Don't worry that by not consuming milk, your child will not get the nutrients they need, because at the age of more than 3 years, your child can already take nutrients from many other foods around him. This is important because if your child has difficulty digesting certain foods or allergies, then even if the diarrhea is cured, if the food is still consumed, then your child will have diarrhea again.
Of course, to be more certain, you should discuss this possibility with the doctor who has been treating your child. You should also choose a doctor who remains, so that the treatment is not repeated again from the beginning.

That's all, hope it helps.
