My two year old woke up vomiting and with a high fever last night. Now he isn't even playing like he normally does--all he is doing is sleeping. Does anybody know if any viruses are going around? If he isn't better tomorrow, I'll take him to the pediatrician.

Thanks, m. I am a worrier, and I get scared to death when my kids are sick--especially the little one, because he can't use words well enough to tell me what's wrong or what's hurting. My mom doesn't live close, so I can't just ask her advice all the time. At 4:00 PM I gave him a dose of Tylenol, because his temp. was 104.8 degrees. It is now 5:10, and his temp. is 102.4.

It is all over Indiana and Michigan. Watch the fever very closely. Get him to the doctor if he is not not feeling any better in the a.m.

hows the temp now
if not down and still up by morning take him in
just keep watch it dont stay up
you can alternate motrin and tylenol every 4 hours
i prefer not to use tylenol
the generic ibuprofen is better for the little ones

Oh poor baby, that is the worst when your children get sick! Just wash your hands often because there is a Norovirus going around that causes vomiting and diarrhea, it was all over the news the other day.

Well its went through all of us here, You have a bad headache, stomach cramps, diarhea, vomiting, it last about 48 hrs. The vomiting is a 24 hr thing but the diarhea lingers.

Hi--my advice for any parent would be to always take your child in for medical attention if their fever rises above the 102 temp mark. Young children can get very sick, very fast and take a turn for worse faster than one might think. I've been in a nursing program for 4 years now and feel that its best to never take chances with young children when they spike such a high fever...set your alarm every 2 hours to check his/her temp during the night and letting them sleep without a shirt on and covered with just a light sheet will help release their body heat, helping to lower their temp. push the liquids....good luck and hope all will be well with your little one
