Q.

runny tummy, tummy aches, head aches

My 3 year old is complaining about head aches and tummy aches and has a runny tummy since yesterday (21.07.08). Last night it looked like it might have been a bit bloody but this morning it was just just runny. We were in a malaria area 3 weekends ago but I did blood tests. Could it be worms?

This could be due to worms, but it is important to exclude malaria again as it is very unusual for a child if this age to complain of headache.
