Head Start Nurse
Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea, & Fever.
Please be sure your child is seen by a doctor if their temperature rises, and is unable to be controlled by Children's Tylenol, or Advil.
If severe nausea, diarrhea or vomiting continues please contact your doctor.
It is very easy for children to become dehydrated and become seriously ill.
Give clear fluids, such as pop cycles, juice, sport drinks, Children's Pedialite, and broth as tolerated.
We love all of our children here at Head Start, and look forward to see your child everyday but... your child must be free of fever with no vomiting, or diarrhea for a full 24 hrs before returning to school.
