Her glands are swollen (previously had tonsils out) and very pale with dark circles round her eyes. Dr testing for glandular fever . My main concern is she s not eaten or drank for 48 hrs due to vomiting. How can I keep her hydrated? She s only 4 stone so tiny frame

welcome to HCM.
Glandular fever is a viral infection which is usually self limiting, and is characterized by fever, swelling of lymph nodes, pharyngitis and spleen enlargement. Vomiting is usually not seen. Anyway, I suggest you get a prescription for an antiemetic which can be given before food thrice a day. Feed her small amounts of fluid foods like thin soups, rice water etc which she can tolerate every 2 - 4 hours. Give her sips of water as much as she can take. I wish her a speedy recovery. thanks.
