My child has had 103 for 3 days now. Was diagnosed with a virus and tonsils were swollen. Now has had a green slimy stool. Should I be worried?
No: When children are ill and diet is off, it is not uncommon to have a change in the bowel movements.

Off & on i'll get stomach ache. Bit side discomfort. Nausea. Doc said ibs. Stool is always soft mushy. Green-brown. Slimy & green mucus. This ibs?
