I am really most concerned about your little girl who has very severe gastro-enteritis indeed. She may well have a salmonella or shigella infection. She has not responded at all to the usual treatments including Questran which is used for chronic diarrhoea. Your daughter must be properly examined and tested to see what is causing her illness. She needs a test called a blood culture plus other special tests for salmonella and shigella and a stool sample must be sent to the laboratory. In my opinion she requires admission to hospital.Please insist that your daughter is seen tomorrow morning or take her to your nearest emergency paediatric department.The weekend is almost here and how is she going to manage over the next 3 days?Please let me know how your daughter gets on.
