Child passing pale yellow coloured stools. Lethargic, eating less. Playing in intervals. Reason?

Hi, My 22 month old son has had 3 epasodes of sickness within the past week along with a pale yellow coloure poo. He is eating (smaller amounts than usual) and drinking fine. He does not have a temperature.I have noticed that he has cut a few teeth within the past few weeks also. He is more lathargic than normal however does still get up and play in between cuddles. He is not constantly crying. There is an increase in the cases of measels around here at the moment so I am reluctant to go to the GP unesesarely. Please can you advise.

3 episodes of sickness in a matter of a week is probably too much hence at present he is in the convalescence period wherein he is going to be a little weak.You should see to it that he has his meals regularly and is kept well hydrated .Also you could give him some multivitamins to boost his wellness.

Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have a mild diarrhea due to a virus most probably.

You can give sips of oral rehydration solutions like Pedialyte, coconut water, and lemon water.

The lethargy may be due to some dehydration.

Monitor her hydration by her activity, urine output, and skin turgor.

Consult your Pediatrician for the examination of the child and for specific treatment.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.
