Irritability in child, grabs stomach, low grade fevers and a runny nose, cure?

my 18 month old has been irritable for the last week, he has been crying at times and grabs or tugs at his stomach , he has also had low grade fevers and a runny nose . He cries only at times and then may just be quiet and not himself. He has also had diarrhea for this past week. Is it needed for him to go to the doctor or is there any over the counter medicine i can give him.

Hi welcome to HCMForum. one should not give any over the counter drugs to the children. your child is suffering with infection in the intestines abdominal pain cold and fever. all these are present in many infections including typhoid.
I advise you to consult a pediatrician for diagnosis and treatment after necesory tests. other possibilities are teething diarrhoea which also requires treatment. other is change of veining food it requires stoping the new food
