Avoid Dehydration: It is important to maintain hydration. Drinking water is best. Avoid beverages with sugar or caffeine since they cause more fluid loss. Other than fluids for hydration rest the GI system meaning reduce dietary intake which could stimulate more diarrhea as well. Question if it could be a side effect of the Penicillin VK (yogurt with probiotics would also be of benefit). See doc if not improving.
