Posted on Tue, 26 May 2015
Question: My daughter had strawberries a few days ago, she is 2. she got very red down there. I stopped the strawberries and thought it would pass. rather tonight she woke crying. She threw up and I noticed her anus is very red. The vomit was mostly phlegm. Is this a stomach virus or can it be step?

Brief Answer:
If she is not used to strawberries, it might be intolerance!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about what your daughter has been experiencing. If she has not be eating strawberries before, this might be a food intolerance or allergy. It would be most suggestive as well is she has no fear. In this case, best approach would be to provide her with enough fluids and as all the strawberries get out of her system, the symptoms would slowly disappear.

It is unlikely to be a sore throat. Strep would always present with difficulties swallowing. Fever is common as well as in stomach virus. If these elements are all absent, then food intolerance is the likely explanation.

For now, the best approach is to make sure she drinks and eats well. I am positive these symptoms would resolve soon. Unless something else comes up, there is no need for further medical attention at this time. IF there are some lingering concerns that you may want to discuss with me, please feel fee doing so in a followup question.

I hope this helps. I wish your daughter well. Thanks for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.

Brief Answer:
What do you mean by her toy has been sick?

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for this followup information. Raspberries and strawberries are very similar. I am not sure if that is the exact cause but would love that you keep away all what is somewhat new to her at this time. The main approach now is to make sure she sinks enough fluids and unless something else comes up, I will advice that you stay calm.

I hope to hear from you. Until then, wish you well.
