In infants under 1 year of age, complaints of diarrhea often accompany, and are often caused by viral infections. In this period of diarrhea, what you are doing is right by consulting directly with your DSA. And you can continue the treatment that has been given by the DSA.
In general, the recovery process of infant patients with diarrhea can occur about 5-7 days after treatment, and during that time fluid intake must be monitored using ORS and breast milk.
While the cough is felt, you should consult a pediatrician again for an examination of your child's respiratory tract. An examination of the development of diarrhea will also be carried out, so that the doctor can find out further steps for handling your child's condition, especially when eating and drinking are starting to be disturbed.
If according to your DSA, treatment can be continued at home, then you can do this. But if the DSA recommends hospitalization based on your baby's condition, then you should also do this. However, reading your information, it is possible that treatment can be continued by outpatient, but control and evaluation are needed regarding the cough experienced.
That's the information we can convey, read also rotavirus.
