Child with abdomen pain, normal bowel. Mild fever, given Motrin. Solution?

I have a 3 yr old, she barely ate or drank today, said her tummy hurt. By this evening she had a normal bowel movement then one that started formed and became mushy, excessive gas all day and she said the tummy pain was in her belly button..she gagged a couple times but never vomited. Her fever was normal earlier but when she went to be she seemed a little warm so I gave her motrin and now I m reading all this stuff and am not sure if I should have given that to her and if I should be worried?

Pediatrician 's  Response

Along with fever when she has tummy problems too its better to give her Acetaminophen syrup for fever. You may give it when temperature is more than 100 ' F.

One or two dose of motrin will not cause a problem. Do not worry.

Her tummy ache may just be due to gastritis or she might be developing a gut infection. She might need medications like Lansoprazole that will help for her gastritis and enzyme preparations like Neopeptine.

Since you say, her oral intake is poor, my suggestion would be to have her seen by Pediatrician and get her treated.

Wish your kid a speedy recovery.
