In brief: Dehydration

Apart from vomiting and diarrhea, the main concern in children with gastroenteritis is dehydration.
Signs of dehydration include decreased urine production (you will notice this if you're changing less wet diapers than usual), dry lips, sunken fontanel in infants, dry skin, crying without tears, and decreased activity level.
