I am so sorry if this question is a repeat... I can't quite

I am so sorry if this question is a repeat... I can't quite figure this out..I took my 2 year old daughter to a family friendly work event. She picked up a bottle of bottled water off the ground rather than from the new waters in the cooler. I took it away from her to make sure she did not choke on the cap, but I wasn't thinking and I gave it back to her and she drank from it...I am so worried I exposed her to germs/disease... Please help...do I take her to ear and explain what happened?

My daughter has had diarrhea with mucus for almost 3 weeks

my daughter has had diarrhea with mucus for almost 3 weeks now with up to 8-10 soiled diapers a day. We have put her on the BRAT diet, pedialyte and her formula. she developed a horrible diaper rash which we now have under control. She is teething horribly and has a lot of mucus/saliva - could this be the issue? We have eliminated everything else.

My 8 year old received a DTAP and Varicella vaccine on

My 8 year old received a DTAP and Varicella vaccine on August 1 at the local Health Department. Promptly after the vaccine she stood up walked about 50 feet told me she was dizzy and passed out. I ran her back to the vaccine area and the nurse placed her on the floor with feet up and she came too pretty quickly and I was told it was quasi normal.Forward to yesterday AM (August 11) when she said her armpit hurt and I thought it may be a delayed reaction. Than last evening she said the back of her arm was itching. I looked and she has a large 2 1/2 to 3 inch diameter red raised welt around the location of the varicella vaccine it is a bit warmer than the rest of her arm, but not real hot. It doesn't seem to be constantly itching and she is eating normal, no fever and her peppy self, but it seems a bit of a long delay.We go to the Health Dept for shots because we see a group of providers at a large Family Medical Center that does not provide vaccinations. I called them yesterday and they told me to call the Health Dept. Can you provide any feedback?Thank YouDaneya Mitchell

My two year old son started complaining of stomach pain

Hello,My two year old son started complaining of stomach pain about 12 hours ago. When asked where it hurt this morning and afternoon, he would point at his belly button. This evening, he pointed to his chest and once to his belly button. About 9 hours ago, he started having a fever of about 100. We treated with Tylenol, but the fever came back after the Tylenol wore off. He does not appear to have any other symptoms, and he has not vomited or had diarrhea today (he did not have a BM today). Is this something I need to take him to his pediatrician for?Thank you.
