I don't know what could be causing it and if it keeps going on you might have to take him to the doc. but whenever wyatt gets a runny tummy, before i run to the doctor i give him some infantflora(i think it's called) it's like a intaflora for babies. you get it at the chemist by all the other intaflora's, should be in a fridge. You just put one tablet in his bottle 3 times a day and with wyatt it sorts out the problem in a day or two. it just restores the natural balance in there tummies. and not really a med.

I was also thinking teeth perhaps.
Tait also gets a very runny stomach before a tooth arrives

My kids also get runny tummy's while teething although with the fever it sounds a bit like a viral thing but if he's not vomiting, then the intaflora or infantflora should work. I found a better one which is called Reuteri drops. You just put 5 drops in their mouth and it's tasteless. Should help his tummy.

Could it be from the scratches he got? I doubt, but I was just wondering.

Zara has had a on and off runny tummy for the past 3 weeks. she had diarrhea and was treated and then her appetite returned to normal, but sometimes her stools are still a bit sour and jelly like. She also has no teeth yet, but there were a few times when her mouth was quite warm...

AND... I FINALLY found prodol...

absolutely no!it's been 3 weeks remember?.he would have gotten over whatever side effect the injection might have.
take him to the doctor to comfirm what's realy going on.in the meantime give him the water soution(ORT) to replace the lost electrolyte.
i suspect gastroenteritis.it could be treated if detected early so.the earlier he's treated, the better for the kid. good luck!

thanks Art, he is getting more than enought liquids, and has no appetite problems, but i think you are right, about taking him to doc, i just put it down to teething,, as when he puts something in his mouth he cries.

For a runny tummy you can try the A B C diet

A - Appels - the red apple grated and left to stand untill a bit brown
B - Bananas - also squashed
C - Carrots - also squashed
