My two year old daughter has been continuously very cranky, and upset. She has been having bright yellow diarrhea, but no other signs. What is this?
Be seen: It is likely a viral gastroenteritis, but possibly something else. She should be seen by her physician for an exam and opinion. However, there are not any meds that are necessarily needed for a child her age, as she is still in diapers, and will clear the virus faster if you allow it to run its course.
