Pedialyte: I wouldn't recommend giving any medications for diarrhea. Focus on keeping your child well hydrated with the appropriate fluids. Stay away from juice or gatorade - which have a good amount of sugar in them and can worsen/ cause loose stools. Pedialyte is the best rehydration solution for diarrhea. Probiotics may help too. See the doctor if diarrhea is bloody or persists for more than a few days.

Pain meds: Acetamenophen (tylenol) or Ibuprofen (advil/ motrin) for the pain. Do not put anything inside his ear unless he has been examined in case of infection w/ a perforated ear drum. You should take him to see his pediatrician when you get the chance to see if he has an ear infection that needs treatment.

Creams: Eczema is due to dry sensitive skin. It can flare in to red itchy rashes with dry air or presence of an allergen. Avoid dryness and any possible allergens you know of. Moisturize often with an unscented cream. Use unscented skin products: soaps, lotions, laundry detergents. Use steroid creams otc or rx depending on severity for flares. If very itchy, an ocassional oral antihistamine can help.
