Child has stomach pain, vomiting, fever, diarrhea. Reason?

So,my 3 yr old daughter has complained of her tummy hurting the last week. She threw up on me one day, later had a mild fever for 1 day then the next day it went up to 101 degrees. She has eaten okay, not great. But only had 1 day that she was very mellow. Now today, she had diarrea and couldn t get to the toliet. Since this morning, she has pooped 4 times. Its color concerns me, it is grayish white, soft like ice cream. Should I collect a sample and take it in? Or could it of just been a small bug? Please help... thank you so much

Thanks for your query.
Your child is having gastroenteritis which could be due to viral ,bacterial or protozoal infection.
Most important is to maintain hydration.
Give oral rehydration solution sip by sip after each loose stool,give coconut water,lemonade.curd,buttermilk,boiled potato,banana.rice porridge so as to maintain hydration and nutrition.
Give lactobaccilus for 2 to 3 days.
Give paracetamol for fever if it is above 100F.
Watch for features of dehydration like lethargy,decreased urine output,increased thirst.

In case symptoms persist get her evaluated by pediatrician for further management.
Wishing your child good health.
God bless.

Hi katdakrae ! Consult with physician, give her ORS solution. Need antiamoebic medicine like metronedazole. Don't give her oily and processed food. Take care. Bye.
