Teething and diarrhea

My daughter she's 9 months old and teething. On tuesday her temperature was 38.2 when i arrive from work.The nany gave her stopayne, I rushed her to Unitas by the time i got there it was 39.4. They gave her Empaped and checked her. She had tonsils. They prescribed Comboforte, Sandoz Anopsy CL and Empaped. She was not hospitalised. On wednesday the fever was better. She started having diarrhea and one tooth was already showing and her gums are swollen. The diarrhea doesn't stop. What must i do? I am currently using Prodol and Ashton & Parsons.

The diarrhoea is due to the antibiotic which you will have to stop. Start her on a probiotic such as Reuteri drops once daily for 10 to 14 days.
