Child having diarrhea and vomiting. Stomach pain. Elevated WBC. Normal stool test. What to do next?

Hello. My child is 6 years old. She had a stomach virus a couple of weeks ago with vomiting and diarrhea . It lasted a few days. Since then, she s complained constantly of her stomach aching. She occasionally has diarrhea but not the watery stools she had with the virus. We have done a CT scan along with a CBC and CRP . The only abnormal thing was slightly elevated WBC s. Stool culture/labwork negative for anything. My concern is that this is now anxiety related. She is very afraid of throwing up. What do I do next?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
If she has an elevated WBC there might be some infection specially if her neutrophils are high.
Give her a couse of probiotics and lansoprazole for 10 days.
Give her easily digestible food and antispasmodics for pain.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
