Child has vomiting and diarrhea, painful hips, groin complaints. Help?

I have a six year old boy who has been sick. After days of vomiting and diaherra. I thought it was just a stomach bug going around his after care program. I took him to the doctor yesterday and was told just to keep him hydrated and feed him as he can tolerate it. He is now complaining that his hips hurt but points more to his groin . I don t want to be a nuisance at the doctors office, but I am concerned with these new pain complaints. Is there medical cause to return to the doctor?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

If your kid is having vomiting and loose stool please monitor him for signs of dehydration.

They include
1. Decreased skin turgor
2. Increasing thirst.
3. Sunken eyes.
4. Irritability.
5. Drowsiness.
6. Decreasing passage of urine.

Pain around the anal region could be because of a rash because of increased moisture there. Request you to just look at the perianal region.

Hope this helps.
Take care
