need to see the photograph of the rash . might b acute urticaria drug induced . as there history of travel high grade fever plus response to cefixime . treat it as infective diarrhea . n utmost importance should b given to correcting dehydration with ors or iv fluids . alwayas include three things in the mangement of gastroenteritis in pediatric patients ors zinc n probiotics . remember it as a rule of thumb . before starting iv fluids its better to do serum electrolytes first . if facilities not available then use ringer lactate . avoid nephro toxic drugs like amikacin .

Thanks

Hypovolemia due to water and electrolyte imbalance That's why tachycardia as a sign Septran syrup is a good choice for that. Plain paracetamol is good antipyretic.

Seems acute viral gastroenteritis. No need to add antibiotics now but add syp zinc which is helpful in decreasing severity of illness, add probiotic and ORS if taking orally and syp paracetamol round the clock for 2 days then sos according to response.. monitor urine output. Send blood urea and creatinine and complete blood count, CRP.

If dehydration is present IV isolyte p acc to wait inj.monocef. Inj amikacin acc to wait.

AGE from my part. Probably viral as rashes present. Unlikely to develop rashes too early in bacterial infections. But I will definitely cover with ABx. Urine and blood should get tested for routine examination and culture
