Coughing , Vommiting and Diarrhea

My baby is 17 months old. He is suffering from flue for the past 2 weeks now. He started having fever on the 27/05/09, he started by having a diarrhea and his nose was blocked. On Saturday he was coughing, I took him to the doctor and his temperature was 39,2 he was every week, vomiting , diarrhea and he did not want to eat. Sunday we went to the clinic and they gave him a drip coz he was dehydrated. Yesterday when a change his poo it was still showing that he still has diarrhea. He has lost lot of wait. Now am worried because he is always sleeping he does not want to be active at all. Please advice on what I should do.

I am very worried about your little son.He seems to be very ill and has the symptoms of a child who has lost a lot of his body salts and fluids because of the persistent vomiting and diarrhoea. You should take him to an emergency clinic or hospital immediately.
