Probably: The most important thing with an illness like this is to keep him well hydrated. Don't worry about eating...He'll eat when he's better, but he needs to drink to avoid dehydration. Clear liquids are best. If things get worse or are not resolving, or if something begins to hurt, you need to bring him to his pediatrician.
