My two year old little boy has never had these symptoms before. He began on June 11th and is still going steady. Began with vomiting and the diarrhea symptoms and that persisted till the 20th...and then it came back on the 22nd. Of course, I have taken him in to the pediatrician twice now. He is hydrated. They had perscribed him an anti-nausea medicine; however, he is still experiencing abdominal pains, he's lounging around, he's had no fever over the duration of these 2 weeks. He has seized with the vomitting due to the medicine but, things keep going out the other door non-stop :( We just did 3 days ago, stool cultures on him and everything came back (-) which is great, but in another way isn't. We can't treat this being it is a 'viral.' That is understandable, but he is 2, he's lost 3 pounds now over the 2 weeks and he's just not himself. Has there been anybody else out there who has had children or have known of children to have caught this nasty little viral and maybe has a bit of assurance? There are 3 other children reported in my city who have the same symptoms...just wish I knew how they're dealing with this matter :/Answer Question
I have heard shigella (sp?) is going around. Have they checked him for that? I hope he feels better soon.
