  • If she does not stay hydrated you need to take her back in. They will have to do an IV but it is better then nothing.

  • they probably say they cant do anyting because if its not bacterial they just let the body fight whatever the virus is. My daughter did the same thing a couple months ago. you just have to keep trying to put fluids in her and if she gets to were she isnt making wet diapers as often take her back that means she is dehydrated.

  • well you need to find a way to see if she is wetting themshe can still hav diarehha and be dehydrated. My son had salmanila(SP?) when he was nine months old and i waited because i couldnt tell either. He got so badly dehydrated they said he would have died if i waited 2 more hrs. is she her normal self? Like other then beingsick. how old is she by the way that would help me help you.
