Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since the baby is 13 months old and had fever which was high grade so i guess he has not been feeding well.The green frothy poop is vomitus along with bile which has come from stomach.You can consult and get medicine from a Paediatrician so that he recovers from fever also the doctor will give some medicine if the baby is vomiting repeatedly.
Thanks

Hi there, My son is 12 months old and is having frothy yellow/green poops all day. It has given him bad diaper rash even though I change him instantly. Is there anything else to do for this? Am assuming he has a stomach bug. He is still eating okay and drinking milk/water. Do I need to give him pedialyte even if he is drinking milk/water and still eating?

my 13 month old daughter has very hard, very pale stools. Last week they were very pale and very runny. She was on cows milk, but we have since switched to goats milk and lactose free whole milk. Her stools appear to be the same color, just the consistency has changed-now she goes quite often (at least 8 times a day) only passes a little, and cries and shakes the whole time. I m bringing her to the doctor in the morning, but is this something I should do something about tonight?

Can valley fever ( Coccidioides ) possibly grow on the thyroid? I have a large nodule in my right lung from valley fever (they said I had about 50% lung capacity) They have been treating it but then it makes my chronic pneumonia worse. Anyways I have 2 nodules on my thyroid now, after doing the iodine test and ultrasound. I just was at my endocrinologist and he said its no big deal and didn t think it could be related to the valley fever. Two of my doctors disagree on the type of valley fever; disseminated coccidioidomycosis or chronic coccidioidomycosis. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I just had an xray and CT scan W+/or WO +Recon. I had gone to the ER d/t continued pain in left posterior chest + felt also in the anterior chest. They were looking for PE after R/O cardiac problems.. He diagnosed pneumonia, BUT said I can't R/O cancer. I have absolutely no symptoms of pneumonia. Is it possible that it could be valley fever since I've lived in Arizona about 40 yrs. Cancer doesn't run in my family. . . .yes, I realize that I could be the exception. Your response is appreciated. HC, RN,BSN (retired)
