Child has the bug

I don’t usually post on here but really need a bit of advice;

My little boy is 7 and he isn’t too well at the minute, sickness, fever and a really bad throat. We have been to doctors yesterday who said it’s viral.

The thing is because of the pain he’s refusing to drink anything. He has complex special needs and is point blank refusing to take any medicine, to drink anything, even take a sip off a spoon every 10 minutes.

Has anyone got any ideas? I’ve tried offering juice, water, even flat coke (I know but desperate times hmm ), he doesn’t like ice pops or ice cream.

Plus what are the signs that he is dehydrated and it’s time to see a doc?
