He will not eat and its been 3 hours sence he pucked and urine is a darker then normal color
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
And he is really red

He is dehydrated and also having fever and vomiting.

You need to do the following-

1. Give him a dose of Zofran first which will prevent vomiting

2. After half an hour given him bland diet

3. Given him enough fluids to keep him well hydrated

4. Give Tylenol every 6 hours

5. Do tepid sponging

If his vomiting continues and if he becomes drowsy or if the urine output drops considerably low, he will need intravenous fluids and you need to take him to ER.

Let me know if you have anymore questions.
