Q.

Runny tummy and vomiting

I need help. My daughter is 2 and a half years old now. for the past two weeks she has been having a runny tummy and vomiting. somedays it is just runny tummy and somedays both. she has just started creche about 4 weeks ago, could she have picked up a bug at school, what would be the best medication for her or must i rather just take her to a doctor?

I am concerned about your little girl who has a gastro infection with diarrhoea and vomiting for 2 weeks. She is at risk of becoming dehydrated. She must be seen by a doctor.
