My dd hasn't been well since Sunday, when she was initially very listless, vomiting and had a temperature..
Since then she's improved slightly, but not very much...she won't take any calpol or anything and if I do try to give it to her, she always immediately throws it up! However, I did manage to get her to take some early evening..
I'm going to take her to the dr's tomorrow, but I'm starting to worry a bit as she really doesn't seem to be picking up as quick as I would have expected her too after a general bug.
She's still been very listless and the rims of her eye look very red and water...she has no rash or anything..
When I ask her where it's hurting etc and ask her about various parts of her body, she always say no, i.e., she doesn't have a sore throat etc...but earlier when I asked her if her head hurt she said it did...
I'm starting to worry now that it's something more serious and feel awful that I didn't take her to the doctors today as I thought she just had a bug
Is her temperature normal at the moment? Is she sleeping? I would just keep a close eye on her tonight (maybe sleep in her room) and take her to the GP tomorrow as planned. If you feel worried at any time tonight then call the out-of-hours doctor - that's what they are there for . I hope she is better soon - it's horrible when they are so poorly.
Sounds like she might be dehydrated. Little ones get dehydrated quickly when they vomit a lot, and the process of converting body fat stores to energy when they aren't eating makes them feel sick again... it's a vicious circle. It can take a few hours on a drip to break the cycle.
