Stop Powergyl!: Please do not give your infant this medicine for the loose motion. It is an anti-fungal and antibiotic that has no use in young infants! It is not uncommon for infants to have loose motions for 4 times, as long as he is well otherwise. If he has real diarrhea, follow these instructions:

Loperamide is safe: Yes, you could take Imodium (loperamide) over the counter, it is safe. Try it and hopefully it will help, however if you take loperamide and continue to have diarrhea for more than two days then you should see a doctor to treat the underlying cause of diarrhea (ie. Possible infection). Make sure you drink plenty of water while on loperamide as well. ...Read more

Can you tell me how I can stop loose motion (diarrhoea)?

Can you tell me how I can stop loose motion (diarrhoea)?

Determine cause: If a patient has diarrhea, the important thing is to determine the cause - that way the treatment can be best directed. Food poisoning or 'gastroenteritis' is a common cause. In those cases, the illness is usually self limited and goes away within a few days. If it's something more, like a malabsorption syndrome, then you really need the help of a GI specialist or someone who can evaluate properly ...Read more

My 6month old baby is suffering from loose motion since last 15 days?

Virus or allergies: I am thinking loose stools is what you mean, and no fever or vomiting? Has he started solids, or changed his diet recently? Loose stools are often a sign of food sensitivity. If you have just switched him to dairy formula or are trying out new foods, try to eliminate them one at a time to see if he returns to normal. If not, follow up with your doc. ...Read more

Don't understand?: I am uncertain of your question. Food will not affect hypermobility of your joints. Joint laxity can be related to genetic conditions (ehrlos danlos syndrome) or acquired problems such as with trauma.

Illness -Dehydration: It sounds like you are dehydrated - since you describe a 'loose' motion-- diarrhea. With diarrhea, you lose salt and water. Try replacing these losses with lots of chicken soup, coconut water, honey and lemon tea, or other fluids. Then, you should notice an improvement. If you are cold, watch out for a 'fever' that might come next -if it is severe, you should see a doctor. Get plenty of rest too. ...Read more
