7-year old daughter has started with vomiting and diarrhea 10 days ago for 48 hours which went away. Then started diarrhea again 3 days ago, with more vomiting - 3 times a day since. Please advice.
Not too unusual: Recurrence of symptoms is not all that uncommon with stomach viruses as the patient begins to eat again, as the gut may be somewhat sluggish. The bigger question is how does she look and feel. If lots of pain, listless, urinary symptoms, bright yellow vomit, should be seen soon.

Dx with cdiff last week & started flagyl. No bowel movements at all in 5 days, is it ok to take laxitive with cdiff?
Questionable C. diff: These seems quite unusual, because C. diff is characterized by LOADS of diarrhea. I wonder if you are eating and drinking? Also if you have abdominal pain or fevers - which would mean you need to see a doctor right away. Rarely C. diff can cause an 'ileus' but seems unlikely. If you want to try the laxative, that would be fine - there shouldn't be any interaction with the metronidazole you're on. ...Read more
