This appears to be a medical concern that deserves quick attention (vs a behavioral matter that is less serious). Contact your son's pediatrician and say that you want your son evaluated in the office. He may require some immediate medical intervention. You don't want to wait and run the risk of his becoming dehydrated. In addition to his usual problem around eating, he may be sick.
