does sun poisoning cause loss of appetite

Posted by jmroyalcrown

my 4 year old son just came back from a 2 week stay in Arizona (we live in Illinois)...he is fair skinned and blonde and came back with a fairly dark tan and his skin is peeling.  My mom said 4 days ago he ran a low grade fever and was throwing up.  The next day he stayed in bed all day and slept most of the day.  The fever and vomitting had subsided.  However, she says that he did not eat a single thing for 4 days.  The only thing he wanted was an ice cold rag on his forehead and loads of ice water.  He has lost 2 pounds and I am concerned about him.  The sun poisoning symptoms seem to fit him, but I did not read of loss of appetite
