Hi, my daughter is nearly 3 years old. She has had creamy white coloured poo for almost 3 weeks. She has vomited 3 times in the last 3 weeks. She is lethargic. She has XXXXXXX eating a little bit not too much. She has lost a lot of weight in the last 3 weeks.

Is this just a bug? Gastro? What do you think?

Thank you for your query.
I understand your concern.
Do not panic.
I think you are right in suspecting a stomach bug.Your child is suffering from some form of gastroenteritis.
Stop milk,juices and wheat products.
Give her a lot of fluids,yogurt.
Give her a probiotic syrup and and some antiacid medications.
If the condition worsens consult your doctor.
Hope this answers your query.
If you have any other queries kindly direct them to me.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
