A doctor has provided 1 answer

Basics: The primary effort is to assure fluid balance.If he can take enough to wet every 6-8 hrs any food reaction should pass over 2-3 days. Applesauce & chilled clear fluids/ice chips can help.Low grade fever can be ignored. Moderate fever that bothers the kid my respond to fever meds. Any true ear infection would require a visit for confirmation & prescribed meds.
