Two things to consider:
- Is this an acute problem (i.e. yesterday the stool was normal and today it looks like diarrhea)? Many times acute issues are linked with fever, vomiting, blood in the stool, and/or dehydration. If your acute issues are linked with the above issues, then make an appointment and have your child evaluated.
- Is this chronic (i.e. going on for several days to weeks)? If your acute concerns are not associated with the above, leave a message on our nurse’s line and we will get back to you.
If your child has diarrhea for longer than 2 weeks, make an appointment and we will address after examining your child if further workup is necessary.
