Hi Elvia, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Your History suggests your Daughter has a Upper Respiratory Tract and Gastro Intestinal Tract Infection. Kindly get her examined by a Pediatrician as she will require antibiotics and Anti Pyretics. Do tepid sponging twice or thrice daily if the temperature is more than 99F. Continue to Breast feed if you are doing it and give her Plenty of Fluids including Oral Rehydration Salts. If necessary, your Doctor may suggest, Blood and stool work up.
See to it that she takes her medicines as directed by your Doctor and take her for regular follow up.
Hope i have answered your query, I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

I Wish her Good Health.

My two year old son has had cold symptoms for almost a year. We took him to an ENT specialist who insisted he put grommets in both ears and remove his adnoids. After the surgery the next day he said that his ears were extremely blocked with pus etc and after two weeks we saw a hearing specialist who said that he seemed to be okay but the machine consistently gave a negative reading on one ear - so had to go straight back to the ENT who said not to worry about it, there is nothing wrong with his hearing etc. His cold like symptoms did start to clear over the next month or so for about three months and then he has been hit again with another dose of symptoms. One of the grommets in his ear has almost come out around the same time he started the symptoms again. We thought that this may have been the problem but our local chemist took one look at him and said he had allergies to something, he said it could be a number of things. He is rather fair skinned and his red/purple rings under his eyes are also starting to look a little scaley. He is starting to rub his eye a little but nothing out of the norm. He is a terrible sleeper since 5 months old and has slept through the night less than a dozen times since. He drinks plenty of fluids and eats like a champion and I would like to know how to isolate foods that may be affecting him. I am extremely exhausted as I am the only one that attends to him during his sleeplessness and I think I myself have developed some sort of sleep apnia. I would really hope that I can find some sort of quick answer to a very long on going issue.

my baby is 2 years old and is having diarrhoea since yesterday. She's gone about five times yesterday and five today. She is about 12 kgs. I've been giving her oral rehydration solution and three does of enterogermina (5ml ampoule) so far, last night, this morning and tonight, but she's again had loose motions. I'm worried because she's been admitted for typhoic once and dehydration once this year. What could I give her please?

hi,
My baby is six months old. Now is 9.4 kg. He is healthy and very active. But his stool test shows that it is acidic, pus cells 8-10 hpf and RBCs 1-2 hpf and mucus is present. Stool culture report shows growth of normal commensals only. Salmonella spp. /Shigella spp. /Vibrio cholerae not isolated. Should I be worried?
