This girl of 3-1/2 has had a cold with fever and vomiting for several days. She has had a little to drink and has become more and more lethargic and has signs of being dehydrated. What signs can we see? Well, she has sunken eyes and dark rings around her eyes. Her lips are dry. She is lethargic and quiet and not as active as when she is healthy. All these are clear signs that she is dehydrated and that she, therefore, needs more fluid. If your child has these signs of dehydration, you should contact the doctor.
