    Hello larrisa8 -

    I am sorry your little guy has not been feeling well. Unfortunately, without knowing his medical history or if a bug is in your area this is difficult to answer.

    Please contact his doctor to have this evaluated. In the meantime, this article may be helpful - Diarrhea, Age 11 and Younger .

    Hoping he feels better soon, let us know what you find out,
