Has he been vaccinated could be riotavirus. Skin can appear to be cool and everything even with this virus. Don't hesitate. Get him to the doctor asap. Keep the fluids up or find some way to keep him hydrated. Use a cream or some cornstarch just to help keep him a bit dryer. Try your best to spread infection by washing hands regular especially after changing nappies or using hand sanitiser after each change.
