Hello!How high has fever been running? Does he have a sore throat any? ( are strep throat very common...fever can be associated with nausea as a possibility ...)Overall picture sounds more of gastroenteritis picture and he may develop more diarrhea if that is the case ..I would suggest that you keep him quiet and resting today...light foods/ soups/ Gatorade / may help to have Emetrol handy ....If he continues with high fever >101.5 I would prefer that he be checked by his pediatrician ...Treat fever as needed ..may alternate Tylenol and Childrens Motrin...I hope that this is helpful Let me know if you have further questions or concernsI will be happy to get back with youIf my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards,Anthony Bray MD
