One year old vomiting and diarrhea for 2 days no fever. Should I take him to doctor?

Vomiting: Try at home oral rehydration using pedialyte and make sure that you do not give dairy products and greasy foods, using a brat diet is helpful. Avoid juices as the sugar content can actually worsen the diarrhea. If the vomiting persists you can ask your doctor for a prescription for Zofran (ondansetron). You can always take him to the doctor

Loose Stools (Definition)

Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet. Instead of remaining a shaped piece of poop, the poop spreads out in the toilet bowl water. Very loose stool is called diarrhea. Loose stool can be caused by infections, certain foods or drinks, ...Read more

My baby girl 1 year old having vomit diahrrea fever?

My baby girl 1 year old having vomit diahrrea fever?

Keep hydrated: We're seeing a lot of gastroenteritis, or the "stomach flu". Currently it's the norwalk virus, or a norovirus. The biggest thing is making sure she doesn't get dehydrated. Watch urine output, tears, drooling and energy level. If those start to flag a bit, then go get her looked at.

My 4 year old had the flu with vomiting 6 days ago, since then she has had diarrhea for about 4 days, should I seek help or will it pass?

Diarrhea after flu: This is very common after the stomach flu. As long as he has no blood in the stool, isn't unusually sleepy or otherwise acts strange, just give it a few days even a week. Avoid all juices and give extra starch. Yoghurt may help too.

My 6 year old has a diarrhea and vomiting, is it stomach flu?

My 6 year old has a diarrhea and vomiting, is it stomach flu?

Probably: Although not really "flu", it is most likely an enterovirus infection. It is very important to make sure he does not become dehydrated. Give him clear liquids, sips at a time if that is what he will take, and avoid milk. If you are unable to keep up with his fluid losses, please go to the ER or your doctor for assistance.

My four year old for stomach flu, vomiting and diarrhea, it's going around. Can I give him promethazine or loperamide?

My four year old for stomach flu, vomiting and diarrhea, it's going around. Can I give him promethazine or loperamide?

Maybe: Those meds could be used in a child that age but not without speaking to a medical provider first to confirm the necessity and the correct dose. In many cases of stomach flu all that is needed is to maintain fluid balance using the proper replacement fluids. Often all that is needed is water but larger volumes of loss may require electrolyte replacement. Know and look for signs of dehydration.

1yr old with 5 days of foul loose stools 4 times/day. Today bowel is pale color & gritty like. Is this more than virus? Ran fever prior

1yr old with 5 days of foul loose stools 4 times/day. Today bowel is pale color & gritty like. Is this more than virus? Ran fever prior

Likely infection: If the stools have some color, like pale yellow and a bad odor, it is likely an infection. If the stools are pure white, it could mean another problem. Follow up with your doctor and take in a sample. All the best.

Probable virus...: The most important thing in the short term is to make sure he remains well hydrated. As long as he is able and willing to drink fluids through this, that is one of the most important things. If he otherwise looks well, supportive care like this will allow his body to clear the virus. If he does not start improving in the next day or 2, or develops new symptoms (like vomiting), he should be seen.

Sneezing, sinus congestion, chills, sweats, diarrhea, nausea. Vomiting every 1-2 hours. I got my flu shot this year.

Sneezing, sinus congestion, chills, sweats, diarrhea, nausea. Vomiting every 1-2 hours. I got my flu shot this year.

Explanation: These all symptoms most likely related to other viral infection, not flu. To help yourself you need to drink fluids by small amount but very often to prevent dehydration, first of all. Diet with a lot of rice, apple sauce, toast, banana are helpful. Advil or Motrin may help with chills. And Day/nyouil is helpful for sinus congestion. Be well soon.

The flu is going around my house and my 3 1/2 yr old daughter has it and she has the vomiting but not the diarrhea. But can I give her kaopectate (kaolin and pectin)?

Just to Clarify: I agree with above but just to make a few things plain: flu (influenza) presents with fever, cough, muscle & joint aches. Never give a child Aspirin when they have fever & viral illness because of very rare risk of developing reyes syndrome. Kaopectate (kaolin and pectin) has aspirin. Does child above with vomiting have "flu"? If no fever & other members just diarrhea and vomiting maybe not. But safer no kaopectate (kaolin and pectin).

Fever: Your fevers are nonspecific and not clearly related to the barretts or malabsorption syndrome as neither of these conditions are usually accompanied by post prandial fever. Are other symptoms like abdominal pain, sweats and chills or cough also occurring then? Infection or noninfectious inflammation are to be considered. See your MD for further evaluation and testing.

9 yr old flu symps Diarrhea, stomach ache, vomiting w some red blood in stool. A little came out in bed. Bright red and a little jelly like concern?

Seek medical help: Blood in stool can be from several causes in children. One of them is dysentery, another is intussusception. In any case it's very important to have the child evaluated as soon as possible. Take him in to his MD for work up.

3 weeks ago, my 1 yr old had a temp for 2 days, then diarrhea now rash. Rash has turned red to bumpy, not itchy. It's been 2 weeks and rash still there?

Rash in a child: Rash, fever, and diarrhea is a pretty common group of symptoms that can be caused by a viral infection. If the child is not very sick, then it is best to wait to see whether everything goes away in time. Virus infections, like the common cold or the flu, are self limited but can last for many weeks. If the child seems to be very ill, then go to the pediatrician.

I threw up about 3 or 4 times one day ago, had diarrhea and black stool. Are these symptoms of the flu? If so how long do they last?

I threw up about 3 or 4 times one day ago, had diarrhea and black stool. Are these symptoms of the flu? If so how long do they last?

See a doctor: Tarry stools can be a sign of bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract."flu" is actually a respiratory illness with fevers, sneezing and cough". This sounds very different.
