Last Sat. DS (14 mo.) had a fever of 102. Next day it was 103 next day it was 102 and then it was gone. He was feeling great all those days and playing, not sleeping anymore, just feverish. DH insisted I give him motrin for the fever, and the D.O. we go to also said to use it.

Yesterday we were at the fair and he had horrible diarrhea. But he was dancing around, happy, eating (not fair food, I brought granola bars from home), singing and playing with the animals. After we got home he poohed in his sleep twice, and today he's already had diarrhea 6 times. I'm keeping him super hydrated (water) and he's eating tons of food. He's not acting sick at all. But I'm just worrying because its so much. He also had a rash on his face that seems to be going away. I cant nurse him because he has been on formula since 3 months.

What should I do? When should I worry? Thanks so much.

Did the rash appear after the fever broke? It might just be roseola:

If so, it's not serious.
