Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Diarrhea in infants and children is most often caused by a viral infection (rotavirus). Viral infections in the digestive tract basically will heal by itself in 7-10 days without requiring any treatment. Diarrhea that continues until day 3 as experienced by your child is actually still quite normal because the disease has not healed.


Although it can heal on its own, the child's hydration during diarrhea must be maintained properly. Children should be given more drink than usual, may be given breast milk, formula milk, fruit juice, coconut water, electrolyte liquid, soup broth, or other liquids. Children are not advised to be given diarrhea reliever because it can actually be dangerous for children. Children are advised to be given zinc 1 tablet a day for 10 days. Zinc is known to help speed the recovery of the digestive tract infected with this virus. Other therapeutic suggestions are administration of symptomatic drugs such as paracetamol to treat fever.


The following are some of the signs that you should pay attention to, if you encounter the following signs, you should take your child to the hospital immediately:

children vomit so badly that they cannot drink at all
BAB is very liquid like rice washing water
child's urine is reduced or does not come out at all
the eyes of the child appear sunken, the crown feels sunken, the pinching of the skin returns slowly, the lips and mouth look dry
children look weak and there is a decrease in consciousness (children are difficult to wake up)

For now, you can continue giving medicines from the doctor according to the instructions given, multiply giving fluids to children, give food if the child wants to eat (no need to be forced), make sure you provide food and drinks that are guaranteed clean, keep washing your hands.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
