In brief: ? Really stomach flu

The safest bet is to worry your child has something more significant than the "stomach flu.
" be especially concerned if your child refuses to eat or drink, has fever over 101.5, abdominal pain with tenderness, lethargy. Its particularly important early on to rule out bacterial infections, appendicitis, crohn's disease, gallbladder disease, peptic ulceration, enteritis. Get your child checked now.
