Suggest treatment for persistent fever and vomiting

My daughter had about three days of fever and vomiting (her father gave her no medicine apparently-- not even ibup/acet for fever--they were camping). Now she has excessive burping. Is slightly lessened with peptobismol, and her pediatrician gave her a prescription antacid (1/2 tab every morning) Pepto seems to have the most effect. Burping almost always follows meals. Lasts hours if not treated (at which point she starts to feel nauseous. We also had fecal test (they were drinking water treated with tablets) but the results are not back yet. Stool seems normal though once it was grey.

Hello,

By your history and description, possibility of intestinal infection is more likely in your daughter. So better to wait for stool report. Continue with an antacid.

She might need antibiotics (for infection) and antipyretic (paracetamol) for fever. Tell her to drink plenty of fluids orally, eat only freshly home-prepared food. Don't worry, she will be alright.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

My 21 month old daughter has had recurrent high temperatures for the last 6 weeks up to 104F and comes down with Tylenol and remains low grade most of the time. It spikes usually once or twice a day. She also has massive diarrhea that is watery and green (sometimes greenish yellow) also for the same 6 weeks at least once a day up to 4 or 5 times. She got sick while on a trip between NY and Germany (I think from a 2 hour gym daycare) and the first week was persistent fever , vomitting, and diarrhea. I could barely get her to keep anything down, but her appetite seemed ok, she was irritable but not lethargic, not losing too much weight, but I was up almost every night and all day long changing diapers, sheets, clothing , sometimes changing 12 watery stools a day and little urine which caused diaper rash . I took her a doctor after about 2 1/2 weeks of this and he suggested a liquid only diet for 3 days, which I helped but the diarrhea and vomitting began again as soon as the diet ended. I stopped giving her fruit juice and she doesn t have dairy as she s lactose intolerant, that helps but symptoms still continue. A few days ago I left her in the care of a friend when her fever spiked to 105 and caused her to take her to the emergency room and another doctor visit 2 days after. Every doctor has said she has a stomach virus, but why would it last so long? None of the doctors have even suggested any testing be done either.
