What causes vomiting and diarrhea accompanied by rashes on the body?

my 6 year old daughter is vomiting and diarrhea. That is not as concerning as the accompanied random redness and swelling that is popping up on her body. She did not eat anything out of the ordinary. She was not exposed to anything out of the ordinary. No fever. She said she doesn't hurt anywhere. Should I take her to a hospital, get her allergy medicine, or just let her sleep it off?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Vomiting and diarrhea with rash may be due to viral gastrentritis like norwalk virus or bacterial infection like ecoli etc. Until stool examination is done it is difficult to say what it is . Give plenty of oral fluids, give ORS solutions.use probiotic sachets twice a day for five days. If symptoms not improved please consult your pediatrician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

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

I ve been throwing up often for the past few months (maybe around 4 months), but I can t find a trigger for it. I originally thought it may be a pork allergy, but I found that I m still getting sick even when not eating pork products. It s very random, and can go from happening twice a week, to not throwing up for two weeks. Also, diarrhea often is accompanied with it.

I am a 33 yr old female. I have a 17 month old daughter. I have been on antidepressants (Effexor) off and on for 5 or 6 years now. It s a low dose and I don t have any bad symptoms from it. Since January this year, I have had episodes of vomiting sometime with diarrhea that usually only last about 12 hrs and seem very random. They happen every 2-4 weeks. So far it s happened about 5 times since January and it s now end of April. After it s done I m able to eat fine. I don t think they are flues that many times. I have a history of anxiety (never very bad) and sometimes I get really bad gas(burps) that smell like sulpher and are accompanied by diarrhea and vomiting, but this isn t the same. Not sure if it s stress or something I m eating. The first two episodes were preceded by me eating fish, so I haven t been eating fish since. I m also on a mostly soy and dairy free diet since November because my daughter has an intolerance to both.

Hello, Recently I made a trip to Las Vegas for 3 days. One of the days I went to a renown restaurant and ordered a steak, medium rare. Well when I bit into the steak it was much more red then I remember medium rare should be, but I finished the plate. The next morning was the trip back home, and I had a real bad stomach ache, and felt the need to vomit, but didn t vomit because I dislike doing so. I get home, nothing but Diarrhea for the next 7 days, I figured food poisoning. However, up until the 7th day of Diarrhea I started getting hives on my body. Nothing of my home routine has changed, and this is a first for any kind of hives for me. Is there a correlation of Diarrhea for 7 days and hives?
