Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.
This can be due to a viral infection.
Diarrhea, vomiting can occur from it.
He is cramping of stomach, aches too.
Sometimes, bacterial & parasitic infections can be there.
Viral infection usually subsides by 3-5 days, sometimes prolong though.
Only supportive measures are needed.
Please give him plenty of fluid, like pedialye to keep good hydration.
Tylenol can help with cramps, aches.
If he does not have any improvement, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
Stool test, antibiotic can be needed.
I hope this information will be helpful.
