Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello and welcome to JA. Dr Saleem here. Will be answering you shortly
How old is he ? Very sorry to hear about that. Has he underwent any tests? Any treatment received?
Alright ,well the most important thing is to keep him well hydrated and replenish the fluid / electrolytes with pedualyte or ORS. Gastroenteritis can cause fever, diarrhoea and vomiting . Viral illness can take more time sometimes . So you just need to manage his fever with tylenol / acetaminopen. Probiotics can help .
Keep him on soft BRAT diet- banana, rice, applesauce and tomato.
Let me know if you have any more queries
The symptoms can last as long as 10 days. If he doesnt improve then a course of antibiotic may be required for possible superimposed viral infection .
You are most welcome.
