Question: 1 yr old with multiple symptoms

 dextersmom - Sat Jul 10, 2010 9:29 pm

My 1 year old nephew has a combination of symptoms that don't seem to be related but i think they are. He has a swollen abdomen, fever, raspy coughing, a silent horse like cry, yellow skin and poop. Is there a condition that would cause him to have all of these symptoms i am very worried he is at the er right now but they don't know anything yet.

User avatar Hello,
I'm glad to hear the baby is at the hospital since these are not normal conditions and he needs to be checked over. I'm sorry I can't diagnose from here. Hopefully a pediatrician will be able to find answers for you. I know it is worrisome.

Best wishes.
