Q.

Rsash,vomitting,and runny stomach

Good day,

I have taken my 8month old to all the paed i could think of and have bought all the prescibed medicine there is to buy but my son ain't getting better.He is having a small rash in his face,vomits every after feed and has a runny stomach and blocked noses.He started vomitting yesterday but got better today.He won't eat nor drink the hydrol solution.He is very restless at nite and hardly takes a nap peacefully.He has no baby teeth as yet and one of the paed indicated that it could be that he is teething.The saline drops won't help even the ones i bought for R187 don't do the trick.The immodium won't help and so is the demazin syrup and the emulsyfying lotion for the rash.Pls help me am running out of my mind here.

Regards,

Sumaya

It is very difficult if not impossible to diagnose your baby's illness without being able to examine him. It seems to me that your baby has Roseola or similar illness. Please ask your doctor if this could be the diagnosis. If it is, once the rash appears your baby will get better after a day or two.
