Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear suejarroush I am very sorry to hear about your daughter. I think most

likely she has got middle/external ear infection. In children in her age quite

often present with diarrhoea/vomoting tummyache high temp with throat and ear infection.

besides repeated vomiting can lead to dehydration. You mentioned she got congested nose and

yellow green nose discharge which is definite clue she has got upper resp tract bacterial infection.

IIf she is refusing drinks I think she should be admitted to the hospital for I/V drip for fluid

and medications. In the mean time give her fluid with salt eg Electrol paracetamol syrup

for pain and fever. She needs antibiotics. You should discuss this with your doctor.

Virus infection does not lasts that long. I wish your child speedy recovery. Kindest regards Dr. SK Mukherjee
