gave him a small drink of water and he threw up also he is now constantly dizzy and has nausea all the time
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
took temp orally and it was 96.1
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
is this problem still being worked on?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

under arm temps are not very reliable.

I would do a rectal or oral temp for him.

he sounds like he is quite dehydrated if he is dizzy and can't keep fluids down

he should go to the ER and get some IV fluids and hydration and prescription antinausea medications
