Customer Question

Drs here simply dismissed it as a bug, but that's not it. Days ago my 1 year old projectile vomited after having a diarrhea type stool, but didn't have any symptoms again. Today she projectile vomited again, followed by three light colored dihhrea stools throughout the day. Every time she goes through a bout, her legs get very hot, and her tummy. Her temp was 99.9 both incidents.
She had a milk bottle both times, but she's had some dairy inbetween without problems as well. I can't seem to think of anything else in common. She's happy, doesn't seem to feel sick.

Greetings,

Thank you for your question.

I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

I am sorry for her symptoms.

Incident that happened a few days ago can be due to indigestion.

Today she has mild rise in temperature, 3 times stool and vomiting.

It can a viral episode.

In most cases viral illness recovers itself with supportive measures.

Try to give rice based food, banana, boiled potato, pedialyte.

If the symptoms continue, stool can be tested.

Bacterial infection should be ruled out.

She may need repeat visit to doctor.

I hope this information will be helpful.

If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
