2 year old complaining about belly being sore.

For the last 2 or 3 days my son has been complaining about his belly being sore.  He had some diarreha (sp?)yesterday.  When he says its sore he pushes in on his belly pretty hard.  I am not sure what this could be.  Any thoughts would be appreciated!  Could he maybe have a hernia?  Should I call the dr. office?  I was just wondering if anyone came across this with any of their children.

Thanks for any comments!

BABY DUST TO ALL!!!!

I dont know really.  I know that sounds strange to say but I dont.  He had it yesterday at my MIL while I was working.  Then he didnt poop the rest of the evening.

I'd definitely keep an eye on him. I had appendicitis on 4th of july, and my stomach was sore, burning, hurt to push on it, I also had dirrahea, and the pain became constant. Does it hurt around his belly button area? A little bit above it? And/or to the right? Take his temp as well.

I think it's pretty unusual for a 2 year old to have appendicitis, but after what I went thru, I don't want to hear of anybody else suffering.

A bullseye rash is often the first sign of lyme disease... try googling and maybe have him seen just in case.

I did not have a fever with my appendicitis and my blood work was just a little off but sure enough that sucker had ruptured. Def keep an eye him and see if the pain increases as mine did over a few days time.

Yea I thought if he is still complaining on Monday then I would make him an appt.  If it gets worse then I will take him to the ER!!

My DH asked him last nite where it hurt and he pointed like kinda by his belly button but def. on the right.  Immediately I thought of his appendix.  Sounds kinda odd for a 2 year old tho.  He doesnt have a fever.  Recently he has some spots on his legs, ear and elbow, kinda looked like a bullseye.  It was really strange.  I called the dr. about that thinking it may be ring worm (they said it wasnt and that they didnt need to see him).  Not sure what that was.  It had a circle with what looked like a bug bite inside of it.  I had never seen anything like that before.

yepp a bullseye rash is a sigh of lyme disease and a sign of certain types or worms you can get from milk or dairy products. does your son go outside a lot? or does he eat a lot of dairy?
