Diarrhea is something that is quite common in children. Diarrhea can be caused due to various causes, such as bacterial infections, viral infections, food abosorption disorders, food poisoning, typhus.
Diarrhea that is too frequent can cause dehydration (lack of fluids), so that the child can become weak and increasingly refuse to eat. This is a dangerous thing.
From the tests you give, CRP and ESR is a test that shows the presence of inflammation / inflammation in the body that is not specific to a disease. Many diseases can cause increased CRP and ESR. the lab results you give show there is still an inflammatory process in your child's body. But this examination cannot be used as a benchmark to determine whether or not to recover and cannot be used as a benchmark for diagnosis. CRP and ESR levels can still be elevated even though the clinical condition has improved.
