12 year old having stomach ache and fever. Should I be worried?

Mu daughter who is 12 just starting saying her stomach hurts in the middle, she is running a low grade fever and she feels like she is going to sick. This came on so fast I am not sure what is wrong with her. I made her drink a glass of water and lay down and she said her belly feels a little better. Can you please advise me should I be worried?

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems having gastritis mostly due to a virus.

For fever you can give paracetamol in prescribed dose.

Watch for any loose stool or vomitings.

Give sips of ORS and soft diet.

Ask her to take rest.

Consult the doctor for physical examination and further treatment.

Hope I have answered your query.
