Hi my dear friends...you won't believe what happened, I eliminated all coconut product and the problem solved the next day!!! it didn't happen when she had the blockage because no matter what, she had "diarrhea" which it was some form of liquid poo trying to go through the blockage, but as soon as the blockage was gone I started the coconut product again, so I couldn't notice any difference...oh boy!! somebody told about cross reactivity and seems that is what was happening...I could do a party, a novel wouldn't be as good as the felling I have now after a week of normal poo...I appreciate very much all your advices and support, seriously!!! now the 2 of us are completely off of any form of coconut...love you guys!!!


In Topic: Is Tempra Gluten Free

I still haven't got a definitive answer!  I found that same website but that brand wasn't on the list.  

 

Please keep her very hydrated.  If you're nursing, encourage her to nurse (that saved me many times).  As long as she's still active and moving around, she should be okay.  If she's lethargic, then she's probably dehydrated and may need to be hospitalized for IV fluids.  Popcicles are a good fun choice for getting fluids.  Also, I keep "Be Cool" soft gel sheets that can be stuck on their foreheads.  Beats an old wet cloth.  They can be sealed up and returned to the frig and used many times.  

 

If you do give her fever reducers, watch for side effects (facial swelling, etc.).  I have a severe allergy to aspirin and ibuprofen that developed just a few years ago -- probably due to my Celiac Disease, but I'm just guessing! 

 

Remember, I'm not a doctor -- just a mom!

She finally agreed to take chewable Tylenol and seems better from the fever, the diarrhea is mild for now, just 1 big splash in the morning, her stomachache is bad though...so confusing...

Thanks dear, I'm suspecting Salmonella because I made mayonnaise yesterday and she got sick after that, but I may be wrong, she had fever and stomachache the whole night, but no more diarrhea,

I'm trying to find a definitive answer on the website, but am not successful so far.  The ingredients look gluten free.  Not sure about the flavorings, though.  What about adult acetaminophen and break it up and put it in some mushed fruit (e.g. applesauce or banana).  Try to keep the the children's dosage.  You could do the same for Advil (ibuprofen) as well.   

 

When my daughter's fever was that high I panicked.  I was sponging her down with tepid/cool water and gave her a dose of children's acetaminophen.  It didn't lower the fever.  We took her to ER.  The nurses and doctors told us to next time give her a double dose of both acetaminophen and ibuprofen at the same time, BUT ONLY ONE TIME, and then every four to six hours take turns using acetaminophne or ibuprofen.  They also reassured me that kids get really high fevers.  

 

I hope others can respond.  I'll keep looking.

Thanks dear, she is sleeping now, the last time I took her temperature it was 39.6...I didn't want to take her to emergency because I've had so bad experiences there. I didn't give her the Tempra, she also didn't want to eat and drink anything. Before I knew she had Celiac, I use to give her Tempra and it was the only thing she would ever take, I know she would also take it now, but the ingredients are so confusing and on top, Tempra is not in the list of gluten free medication I found here: http://www.glutenfre...gs.com/list.htm Also her heart rate was over 140 per minute, in telehealth they told me this happens when children get fever, I don't know, never heard of that before...
