It happens sometimes: Kids do get sick from time to time. A child with symptoms suggestive of a "stomach bug", meaning an infection with some sort of virus or bacteria that causes stomach symptoms, can happen from contact with surfaces, such as doorknobs, toys, and other people who don't look sick. Infections can also come from foods and drinks that contain the germs or the toxins produced by the germs.

Fluids: Clear liquids and a pro biotic may relieve symptoms. Continue her asthma and other medications as prescribed. Treat her fever with Motrin or Tylenol and please follow up with your pediatrician.
