Brief Answer:
Infection of gastroenteric tract ( viral or bacterial ).

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

Most probable causes of your son's symptoms are infections ( viral or bacterial ) of the gastroenteric tract ( stomach and bowels ).

First three days of fever, symptomatic treatment is recommended (antifever drugs such paracetamol or ibuprofen according to weight and good fluids intake).

If fever persists after three days, stools sample and laboratory tests needed, as well as antibiotics use.

These issues should be discussed with your son's Pediatrician.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.

Do I take it before co-codamol?
