How can we treat diarrhea caused by food poisoning or bacterial/viral infections etc while on protocol? Almost every pediatrician prescribes probiotics for children, when we complaint of loose motion but probiotics aren’t allowed in the protocol. Kindly advise.
The majority of food poisonings do. not require any form of treatment and will spontaneously subside. If a child is substantially ill and at risk of dehydration or other complications, they should be evaluated in the hospital setting, and antibiotics, not probiotics, are the treatment of choice if necessary.
