Suggest remedy for diarrhea with vomiting

My 6 year old daughter came home from the first day of school with an upset stomach. She started having diarrhea and vomiting at 8 am this morning. I kept her home from school, gave her some crackers and sprite then she said she felt better. She had loose stools off and on all day then it seemed to finally subside. She began eating and drinking regularly. She went to bed at 10 pm then woke at midnight with poop in her panties then puked everything up she had eaten throughout the day. What do I do? No fever but gets chilled after she pukes and she said she is extremely shaky. Should I take her to the ER?

Thanks for putting up your query at HealthCareMagic. Your daughter probably has acute gastroenteritis. It might have ingested some preformed toxin through her food. Give her ORS. Prepare ORS by mixing a packet in a litre of water and give it sip by sip. This is important for maintaining the salt and water balance in her body. No need to give her antibiotics as of now. Subsequently you can definitely consult a doctor who would be able to guide your further.

I hope that helps. Feel free to revert back with further queries if any.
