Small child, having fever, vomiting, green diarrhea. History of rotavirus. Treatment?
my 20 month ol daughter started with fever , vomitting and green diarrhoea with mucus on friday. The vomitting stopped on friday evening but the temperature and green diarrhoea is still present. We are trying to feed her starchy foods and a rehydration drink. She had rotavirus at 3months old and I have read that it is possible to get it more than once?
You are correct in giving rehydration fluids and watching the child.
No need for antibiotics.
Rota virus has many strains and infection can recur with a different strain.hope you have given rotavirus vaccine to your child.
