Your kid has Gastroenteritis
, which is infection of the gut, most commonly viral.
Till you see your doctor you can do the following things.
- For fever, give Acetaminophen
syrup in a dose of 15 mg/kg/ dose, repeated every 6 hours.
- For vomiting, give her Domperidone
syrup in a dose of 0.3mg/ kg/ dose, repeated every 8 hrs.
- Loose stools will not stop immediately. As you already know you have to take care of her fluid intake
Give her plenty of fluids- rice based porridge/ vegetable soups/ plain water/ ORS
Give her lot of curd in addition as it has probiotic
bacteria naturally and very good for diarrhea
Avoid fruit juices/ cow`s milk temporarily.
- Be sure that she passes urine atleast 4 to 5 times in a 12 hr period.
If at any point of time, she becomes tired/ drowsy or her oral intake is very poor or her urine output is very less, do not hesitate to take her to ER.
Hope my answer helps you.
Wish a speedy recovery for your kid.
