Hello. Our DD is almost 20 months old. She is generally very healthy, although does have quite a few food sensitivities that we are gaining control over.
She is dairy free. Although we have been recently reintroducing dairy with a bit of kefir. She is also off of strawberries, citrus, tomato products and other berries.
We give her a dairy free probiotic every day.. We also give her a small dose of a multi-enzyme everyday.
She usually eats very very well.
On Sunday night/Monday morning she woke up vomiting at 2:30 am. She has not vomited since she was a little infant and spit up a lot. We cleaned us all up and went back to sleep. On Monday morning she had some very loose stools. And then again a couple of times that day. She was in generally good spirits, but also sucky and "not herself". Later in the day she started to get a fever. By Monday evening she had a definite fever. We gave her some infant tylenol that brought her fever down a bit for a little while and then it shot up again. She didn't have an appetite for anything.
Tuesday she was still feverish but lower grade, but didn't vomit again and the loose stools stopped. Her appetite was still null.
Wednesday she was back to normal with temp and stools. But her appetite was still very low and she wasn't herself. Still very sucky and not wanting to do much playing. She didn't want to go to drop-in playgroup or the library. She just wanted to stay home all day. VERY much not like her.
Thursday her appetite was low in the morning, higher in the afternoon and null in the evening. Still not much into playing or anything.
Today she had 3 stools. Loosish (consistency of pudding), although she never has firm poop. It was also quite pale in colour with lots of undigested food in it and what looked like flax seeds, although she didn't eat anything seedy in the last couple of days. And her labia and vulva were very red and I think stinging as she cried and fussed when we wiped her down. (we are used to undigested foods as we are still figuring out all of her sensitivities)
We put coconut on her "diaper rash" and she was fussy and clingy all day. She still did not have much of an appetite, although did eat some at lunch. She is definitly not herself. And her face is more pale than usual. It goes from being quite pale to fairly normal to back to pale again.
Any thoughts? She has never really been sick before, except for a bad cold about a month or so ago.
Do you think it may be a virus? Or maybe a sensitivity to another food?
At what point should we take her to a doctor?
She is seeing a nutritionist next week and her ped the week after.
