My son (1 yr) was just diagnosed with salmonella poisoning. He's been having diarrhea, vomiting, and high fever once up to 103 but Tylenol isn't helping it goes away and comes back in like 3 hrs. and his doctor isn't doing anything about it just told me to keep giving it to him and it will go away; and up throughout the whole night. He hasn't been eating anything for the past almost week except applesauce, bread (sometimes cheese toast), and yogurt but never more than a few bites; Hes drinking plenty so hes not dehydrated. I was wondering if any of you had gone through this with your child(ren)or know of someone who has that can give me some pointers on how I could maybe sooth his pain or get him to eat something other than bird food until it blows over.
Thanks in advance,
worried mom

It took my son about 14 days till he was better.The bioflorin capsules is a natural product,its just to help the tummy alittle.I am going to ask my doctor next time why i was treated with antibiotic but not my son.I wonder if its because of the age.I was also worried about the eating,but doc told me fluid is more important.

Thanks for responding. His doctor said that there isnt anything he can take for it we just have to wait it out, she also sad it would be about 10-12 days before it goes away guess we'll see how he's doing in 3 more days.
