HELP PLEASE!!!!


Hi Worried,

Slow down.  Not everything needs the doctor - yet.

He hasn't been that sick for that long, that I'd be overly concerned if he is in overall good health.  It sounds like a virus, probably the "stomach flu" or even food poisoning.  Either way, let him rest, keep him comfortable, and keep him hydrated.  It's OK if he doesn't want to eat anything.  If he would, give him some soup and maybe dry crackers.  Ginger ale that has gone "flat" is good for the stomach.  No dairy!  It can aggravate his GI tract.

If he has any difficulty breathing or the stomach pain is severe, then take him to the ER.

95.5 is not a problem if he has been resting all day.  It's not a fever.
