Virus Eye infection from father to his son!

A 30-year-old man presents with a red, pruritic eye. On inspection, the conjunctiva is inflamed, with small, clear vesicles, and no pus. Five days later, the patient returns, and says that the symptoms in his eye have resolved, but he complains of a sore throat and non-productive cough. He is concerned that he may transmit this illness to his 18-month-old son. What additional symptoms in the son would likely indicate transmission of the disease?
A. Rash
B. Vomiting
C. Productive cough
D. Loss of muscle tone
E. Diarrhea

Default E- Diarrhea

E. Diarrhea.

Not exactly sure, but if this infection is by an Adenovirus causing viral conjuctivitis leading to symptoms of pharyngoconjuctivis, it will most likely cause Diarrhea in infants.
