Sudden diarrhea and sweating are common symptoms in children. The cause of these symptoms is usually infection. While dehydration may be the immediate concern, it can also be a symptom of much more serious problems that require medical attention.
Most commonly, gastroenteritis occurs when bacteria from the gut enter into areas outside of the intestine (such as through a tear or irritation to an area not covered by regular mucous). When this happens, they produce toxins that irritate your body’s normal response to fight off illness. This results in diarrhea and/or vomiting which is sometimes accompanied by fever and chills. In some cases, nausea or abdominal pain may occur before your child starts having diarrhea or vomiting. Diarrhea generally lasts for several hours but can last up to five days if left untreated with antibiotics such as amoxicillin-clavulanate (Augmentin). You should contact your healthcare provider immediately if you observe any of these warning signs: profuse watery stools lasting for at least 24 hours , increased frequency of stools , blood in stool , foul smelling flatus odor Abdominal cramping often accompanies bouts with sudden diarrhea—particularly if there has been no vomit present on previous occasions—but it does not have to come along with throwing up . Although most people do sweat during fevers, excessive sweating caused by fever does not necessarily mean you have pneumonia .
