1 doctor agrees

In brief: Diarrhoea

Please take him to your doctor
It sounds like a viral gastroenteritis which is easily treated ,but best assessed by your doctor as small children can get dehydrated very easily.

In the interim use panado syrup,about 3 to 5mls every 8 hours to control fever
give a rehydrating solution for your child to sip
A drip may be best to rehydrate your baby

In brief: To ER ASAP

Your child needs to be evaluated immediately! I suspect he is quite dehydrated.
He will need IV fluids to help him. Please do not delay!
