hi my son is 1 and a half years old and he has been suffering from diarreah on and off.about a month and a half back he was hospiltalised twice with high fever and diarreah. all the tests results were negative only the WBC counts were slightly higher but the culture analysis were negative. about a week back he started vommitting and just wouldn t stop. he would vommit even if he had just water. we took him to the hospital and he was administered an injection to stop his vommitting and he subsequently developed diarreah. we had given him zionide and g norm based on doctors advice. His diarrea has got cured but he passes stools three times a day varying colours and consistencies. I had given his stool tests(stool Microscopy and Rotaviral ), his microscopic results hav returned negative except for two one his reaction has returned - ACIDIC and Pus cells as - Occassional/hpf awaiting the rotaviral result. is this normal?

I have a 2 1/2 year old granddaughter with me today with stomach flu, vomiting and diarreah. I ve been following the B.R.A.T diet but wondering it there is something else I can be doing as I know that OTC meds aren t suitable for children. She has been able to keep down some ginger ale, a few crackers and a bit of chicken noodle soup.
