Thanks for writing to health care magic.

White color of the stool and loss of appetite along with vomiting indicate she might be having jaundice.

Are the eyes of your child yellow or the skin has a yellowish discoloration.

Is the pain abdomen more towards the right side?

If any of these is positive we should investigate your kid with investigations like serum bilirubin and other investigations to prove jaundice.

Hope this hleps
Take care.
