Abdominal pain, burning in anus, vomiting, nausea, flu. Worry?

My 5 year old daughter has been sick with what we thought was the flu since Tuesday. Started with high fever (103*) and Included lots of abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting. Also loss of appetite. Saw the doctor for that and ruled out strep throat (even though she had pus sacks on her tonsils). For the last 4 days she's been experiencing severe burning of her her stools are very acidic. Even when she isnt passing stools. Also she has been passing light yellow colored stools that are very buoyant. And still, on and off bouts of abdominal pain. Any ideas if this is something more serious than flu stuff? I'm a little worried about gallbladder issues.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.Forum.
Your 5 year old daughter had fever, abdominal pain, nausea,and vomiting, and loss of appetite. She had sacs of pus on her tonsils. She had loose motions as well, and burning in the anus.
It appears to be follicular tonsillitis, nausea and vomiting are secondary to the fever, the yellow stools could be due to the fever or the drugs used for the fever. Some drugs may be causing gastric irritation, and acidic substances in the intestines, resulted in burning anus.
I advise you to consult a pediatric specialist, for diagnosis and treatment. She may have to get culture and sensitivity of the throat swab besides other routine tests for confirmation.
Don't worry, she will be fine in two days with correct way of treatment. In the mean while you can use paracetamol and anti spasmodic for temporary pain and fever relief.
Wishing for a quick and complete relief.
Best regards.
