Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
She may be having Gastroenteritis secondary to Rotavirus or any other causative organism. You should be taking her to a Pediatrician and get examined and if need be get a Stool culture done. She may need antibiotics. Feed her Plenty of fluids and give her sponge baths to bring her temperature down. Check her temperature every 4th hourly.

Good Luck.

7.5 month old grandson sudden started fighting drinking his formula bottles and then started refusing to eat baby foods too. Occasion low grade fever. Doctor appointment last week confirmed no ear problems, possible teething but no teeth yet and still refuses to eat anything. Now foul smelling diarrhea as well. Will not eat baby food or table food and only 3-4 ounces of formula 2-3 times a day. Has also thrown up twice. Used to take Tylenol with no issues now have to literally force it in him, taking two of us to get him to take it without spitting it out. Only other change is brand of formula, from similar to Costco store brand and now back to similar. Can this still be teething? How long can he go with decreased amounts of formula without it affecting his growth and development?

44 yo female. Healthy. I am running a low grade fever 99.0-100.00 for almost 2 weeks. Had blood work Wednesday last week (CBC and SedRate). Doc was concerned that I had a post infectious issue going on due to diarrhea from the week before after trip to Mexico. No mosquito bites-so Zika is probably not an issue. WBC was normal, SedRate normal but RBC was low - was told was anemic (was on period at the time, but was not heavy) and may want to do more blood work today. Feeling very fatigued, joints ache, not much of an appetite and when I eat I get full quickly and cannot finish meal. I am very worried. Temp is currently 99.2 after being normal all morning to this point. Waiting on phone call back from doc office to see how they want to proceed. Any thoughts you have would be much appreciated.

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?

hello. our 3 month old daughter has been getting a small amount of blood in her diaper. we took her to the ER a couple of weeks ago and she was admitted because she was also having vacant stares. they did a CT scan on her head which was normal, a 20 minute EEG which was normal and two lumbar punctures which were unfortunately unsuccessful but they tested it anyway and it was fine. They ended up diagnosing her with the rotavirus. she is still get periodic blood in her diaper though and wondered what might be other causes. she has been straining a bit the last few days but as she s breastfeeding isn t constipated. can you offer any advice please?
