Brief Answer:
Yes... stomach flu or viral diarrhea can cause fever

Detailed Answer:
Hi....the answer to your question is - Yes - stomach flu or viral diarrhea can cause fever.

It seems your kid is having viral diarrhoea. Once it starts it will take 5-7 days to completely get better. Unless the kid's having low urine output or very dull or excessively sleepy or blood in motion or green bilious vomiting...you need not worry.
