You need to find out what is causing this diarrhoea which seems rto be continuing for a long time, possibly since July. It is important to give her an electrolyte soulution to drink to replace salts and fluid she is losing. Give her frequent extra sips of Rehidrat solution. She should be seen at your nearest paediatric hospital or clinic.
