Hi, my daughter is 3 and she had the same problem. (except coughing spasm), 5 days ago she had vomiting, loss of appetite and then 2 episode of white poop. (last just today). yesterday she has some small urticaria on her body, hand and foot. I gave her Loratadine and now she is OK.
about your kids, could you understand what was the cause? should I go for blood tests and liver function test?
My goodness I think we have experienced almost parallel experiences. My son is 4 came home from school coughing, turned into a coughing spasm, took him to the hospital, they gave him a nebulizer treatment & diagnosed w/ an ear infect. treated w/ anti-b. Then a week later, vomiting non stop, and 3 days feeling better, now white poop! Did you ever find out what it was?
Wow, your little guy sounds miserable, and you has well. It's heartbreaking when they're sick.
The white bowel could just be in reaction to the medication he's taking?? Has the doctor ruled out RSV?? My daughters never had it but, his symptoms (coughing for 4 weeks) sounds alot like it. If that's the case he really should be getting breathing treatments, they're much more effective. Were you given med for the cough the first time you took him in?? Could it be an allergic reaction to the meds??
It does take their little bodies to work through viruses longer than us. Ask to make sure your son isn't getting dehydrated. Keep pushing a many fluids as your son will take. Not eating isn't a major problem it's when they stop taking fluids.
