Hi, our four year old daughter had a stomach virua one week ago and her bowel movements since then have been grey clay coloured and of similar consistency. Is it normal for this condition to persist for this long?

Brief Answer: yes wait for 1 more week Detailed Answer: Hi, Yes , viral gastroenteritis takes time to recover fully. You can wait for one more week and then check the stool colour. Normally grey stool colour denotes liver problems. If the stool persists to be grey after a week please go o the doctor for assessment Good luck Dr Uma
