Hello,

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

Yes, this is a matter of concern

He might be having infection, you need a doctor's attention now

DO not take more immodium

Please take him to doctor, so that doctor can see if the diarrhea is due to infection and he can give an antibiotics course

Hope this helps
