Infectious?

Hi,
My DS was poorly the other week. He vomited once in the night so I kept him off school. I called school on the 2nd day to say he would be off (48hr rule) but they said as he had only vomited he could go back in (after24hrs). He went to school on the Friday and on Friday night he had diarrhoea once. Sat night he had diarrhoea once and vomited again but only once. Sun he had diarrhoea once. I kept him off on the Monday and Tuesday and he went back to school weds and Thursday. He had diarrhoea once again on the Thursday night once on Friday and once today. He has eaten normally pretty much the whole way through and was unwell only at the beginning when he had vomited. I'm not sure if this is normal and will run its course....whether he still is infectious...or whether his gut hasn't returned to normal. I will get him probiotic yoghurt tomorrow to help but don't know whether I should still keep him away from everyone? It's never ending! Thanks.

It's really tough as some dc just seem to be more sicky and tummy upset long after the bug has been and gone. My youngest once spent 3 weeks being sick every 3 days. The school were in agreement that she should come to school as she pukes when she over eats - think her stomach is just oversensitive.

When does he finish for the school holidays? Any temperature at all?

He has just finished school...he missed the last day! He has no temp eats normally and just looks slightly pale. He says he's 'starving' a lot. It's not like he's running to the loo either. It's only happening maybe once a day...it's a bit weird as he's never poorly.

Sounds like he's just out of sorts tbh. Hope it's all back to normal very soon.
