Summary: at this time just offering supportive care with oral rehydration and monitoring him to see if symptoms are persisting. treat any fevers with Tylenol. sometimes if the child is vomiting with any oral fluid, wait for the child calm down and see if they will want some pedialyte or other fluids after their nausea subsides. if child appears to be having abdominal pain, this would warrant a medical eval

Mgt: Please monitor his hydration, check that he has wet diapers and a moist mouth. You can give sips of clear liquids and please see your pediatrician,
