  • I would guess e-coli. I had it about a year ago and that sounds like what I had going on. My son (he was 1 at the time) had it also but he got over it quickly. They gave me phenergan (sp) for the nausea and hydrated me through an IV. My son only had it for a couple of days, we just gave him pedialyte (which makes the diarrhea worse briefly but keeps them hydrated) and he went right back to normal. Hope this helps.

  • I'm sorry if my DDs doctor hadn't found out what was wrong her yet I'd bypass him and take her to the emergency room.

  • If her doctor wont' answer the questions - go to the ER instead.
