Stop minocycline: Minocycline itself can cause stomach upset. If you do have gastroenteritis, your stomach has enough to deal with at the moment. Let your doctor know you are stopping it. You can resume it on your doctors advice after your gastroenteritis resolves.

A 29-year-old member asked:

Is it necessary to avoid feeding my child dairy after a bout of gastroenteritis?

Dr. Cory Annis

No: Sense & science disagree. With diarrhea, cells that digest the sugar in dairy (lactose) get stripped away. Then fluids pass right through undigested, worsening diarrhea. It takes a while for those cells to return. However, studies suggest avoiding dairy doesn't help kids get better faster, but does help adults! yogurt seems ok for both, though, as lactose is already digested by helpful bacteria.
A member asked:

How much fluid should I give my child to rehydrate him after a bout of gastroenteritis?

Enough to get pee: The real question is: how do I know my child is well hydrated? You should keep giving fluid until you see a good number of wet diapers, moist mouth, tears, and bright shiny eyes. Your child should be more awake, alert, active. If they are lethargic, not drooling, not making tears with crying, or having significantly decreased urine, then you need to give more fluids or call your doctor immediately.

How do I know when my child needs medical attention for gastroenteritis?

Fever, dehydration: If your child has a high fever or blood in the stool or if he is vomiting enough or having enough diarrhea that he has a dry mouth, no tears and is very listless, he needs medical attention. If he is less than 2 months old, you need to at least talk to a doctor and might need to have him seen.
