2 Yr old has been vommiting daily for 7 days - was every time he ate, last 2 days only once a day - also has very watery diarrhea for 7 days - many times a day


Any test taken for diarrhea? Which medicine he is taking?

no tests have been done for diarrhea - was diagnosed with the ear infection by Dr. looking in his ears last monday (feb 22) - was vommiting and having diarrhea before starting the meds - is on Cefixime 20 mg/ml 4 ml once pd - we did not give this to him last night as we thought this may be causing the vommiting as he has vommited 3 hours after going to bed the last 2 nights, but his still woke up and vommited after about 3 hours of sleep.

also - he has NO appetite - most we have been able to get him to eat in a week is half a piece of toast - when he trows up he does so until he dry heaves
Thank you for the input.

When the symptoms have started before starting medicines , it is unlikely to be related to the antibiotics. Vomiting can occur with ear infection too but diarrhea is uncommon. It can be due to an infection in intestine or colon. As he is not taking any food, he can get dehydrated. He needs an urgent evaluation by doctor. Please watch his urine output. Fluid & electrolyte solutions like pedialyte can be tried till you visit doctor..

Hope this information will help you.
Wish his healthy life.
