Viral gastroenteriti: Most likely explanation given your age, constellation of symptoms and course of improvement is acute viral gastroenteritis. Food poisoning is another possibility.

What is the treatment for diarrhea and vomiting in a child of 22 months?

What is the treatment for diarrhea and vomiting in a child of 22 months?

FLUIDS: The most important thing is hydration. Infants can become dehydrated quickly. Pedialyte is a great fluid to start with. Wait 30-45 minutes after a vomiting episode before introducing small amount (1-2 teaspoons) and wait 10-15 minutes and offer a small amount more. When no longer vomiting increase fluids and introduce solids(bland) small amounts. If still vomiting see your pediatrician. ...Read more

Can fifth disease in children cause bad diarrhea?  What are some home remedies I can use for her rash? When will it be gone? Child is 2.

No diarrhea: I cannot recall ever seeing a case where diarrhea was involved.They can occur simultaneously for a number of reasons but it is not a listed symptom. I would ignore the rash.It comes up from the inside so outside creams or treatments don't help. The rash may flare with a warm bath or play outside and can persist for weeks.They are not contagious when the rash appears. ...Read more

What natural drink or remedy to stop or ease diarrhea symptoms?

What natural drink or remedy to stop or ease diarrhea symptoms?

Find cause first: First define the problem (do you have soft or frequent stool?), circumstances under which diarrhea developed (malabsorption, pancreatic maldigestion, food intolerances, stressful times, exposure to ill individuals, food poisoning, ischemic gut, inflammatory colitis, etc.), severity (stool volume, dehydration, blood, night-time awakening, weight loss), & duration.

Are tampons a good remedy for intractable diarrhea? If so, where do you put it?

Are tampons a good remedy for intractable diarrhea? If so, where do you put it?

Bad idea: Tampons are meant for uterine/vaginal bleeding. You insert it, it expands when wet, can't migrate farther up, and can be reasonably easily removed. Foreign bodies in the rectum can migrate up, beyond the reach for retrievel (unpleasant at best), and arguably could cause a bowel obstruction. See your doc, find out why you have diarrhea, and treat it the right way. ...Read more
