Suggest remedy for vomiting with diarrhea with runny nose and cough

My son is almost 7. Very high functioning autism which is only important in this situation because of his non-compliance with continuing with tylenol and his refusal to have blood draw and the labs quick reply that I should bring him back when he is ready to comply. He s been sick now for about 3 weeks. Started with 48 hours vomitting...then about a week later diareha, pooed himself while asleep a couple of times...then just seemed to be brewing a cold that never broke until last week he was pretty much lethagic, curled up in a fetal position with head on my chest...sleeping, much decreased apetitie and fluid intake. Had been able to get him to take tylenol intermittentl because he seemed to be feverish. He s had a chest x and its clear. green fluid stool is at the lab pending results for O and P (I think). But has refused blood draw, despite very heavy incentives. Still runny nose and cough. What do you think could be going on?

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

One should be concerned in such situations. The condition seems to be due to transient low immunity. But in this case, things have extended pretty long. It will be better if you stay in touch with pediatrician rather than keep giving him Tylanol. The doctor may prescribe other symptomatic treatment for the relief. Once reports are received medicine can be prescribed accordingly.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Ratna Mulay, Pediatrician
