Your son should be seen by a doctor as he runs the risk of becoming dehydrated after 3 days of vomiting and diarrhoea. In addition he is refusing to take the necessary fluids. You can try to give him Rehidrat solution first which has a reasonably good taste but if he will not take the Rehidrat he must see a doctor.
