Hello doctor,

My 20 months old daughter did not pee last week for above 24 hours, the next day she did pee, but also vomited. On the same day, she was having a fever of 102 F, so we went to the pediatrician. He gave Vomitab, Calpol, and an antibiotic injection. From the past three days, the urine output is normal, the fever is gone, but now she has loose motions. Before taking the medicines, she was severely constipated. Now almost after six days, she vomited twice today and has diarrhea (3 to 4 times today). And she did not urinate since afternoon. I need help. She puked once before and after taking the medicines.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Please note that this must be two different infections. 

  • The reason why the child has not passed urine now is probably because of dehydration. It is advisable to give her 100 ml ORS (oral rehydration salts) with the passage of each loose stool for maintaining hydration.
  • You can check the hydration status by checking skin turgor on the skin of the tummy. If the skin goes back slowly, it means the child is dehydrated.
  • The most important thing is to watch for lethargy and refusal to feed. If these signs are present it is advisable to get the child physically examined at the nearest facility.
