My 3 year old has had a fever, vomiting,and complained of stomach pain has not eat what could this be?
Took him to er and they just gave him a antibiotic not sure it’s not a appendicitis
Answer by Navin V
from the symptoms you list appendicitis seems highly unlikely: fever and gradual onset of abdominal pain together with vomiting and reluctance to eat all indicate a tummy infection that has irritated the internal mucosal lining–Gastritis (if the intestines & bowels were also inflamed he would present with diarrhea rather than just vomiting).
Gastritis, especially in young children, is likely to arise from having eaten stale/contaminated food with bacteria growing on it. The antibiotic prescription is sound medical practice; please ensure that he completes the course with respect to dosage as well as duration (not doing so can make him prone to antibiotic-resistant bacteria in future).
Try giving him a very light diet with adequate fluids and salt (to avoid dehydration) for a day or two; re-introduce his favorite foods in small quantities thereafter. If his discomfort persists in the meantime, over-the-counter preparations like Digene (Gelusil) or Eno fruit salt etc. will help.
Consult your doctor if the symptoms do not diminish in two days, and keep a close watch on his eating habits (fresh, covered food, hand-wash before meals…) in future–prevention is better than cure!
All the best.
