Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

First of all, I want to confirm in advance, how many times exactly is your niece defecated and is the bowel really liquid like in the early days of diarrhea or just soft? This is very important to ensure that your nephew is still experiencing diarrhea or actually has recovered but his stools still look soft. If the stool is only soft, the frequency is only around 1-2 times, then your nephew might not have diarrhea anymore.


Diarrhea in children is most often caused by Rotavirus infection. This infection can usually resolve on its own within 3-8 days. If up to 2 weeks your niece's stool still looks runny and the frequency is still more than 3 times, you should advise her parents to take your niece to the pediatrician for further examination. Some things to do now:

give more drink to children (can drink anything, ranging from milk, electrolyte liquid, soup broth, coconut water, etc.)
if not previously given, you can give zinc tablets 20 mg per day for 10 days for children
You can also give probiotics to your niece


So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
