Diarrhea is usually caused by a viral infection of the intestines, although occasionally by bacteria or parasites. Diarrhea usually lasts from several days to weeks, thus maintenance of oral fluid intake is imperative. Do not expect a quick return to solid stools. Follow these recommendations:
Infants- continue with formula or breast feeding unless instructed otherwise.
Croup is a viral infection of the vocal cords, voice box (larynx), and windpipe (trachea).
There is a distinctive tight low-pitched barking cough with hoarseness due to swelling of the vocal cords.. A harsh, raspy vibrating sound (stridor) is heard when your child breathes in, usually only with crying or coughing. Symptoms usually last 5 to 6 days and generally get worse at night.
