Brief Answer: Answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. Persistent vomititng leads to dehydration and salt loss. The fluid and salt has to be replaced. Because of vomititng you cannot retain anything given orally. So you need to have intravenous fluids. You need to go to ER immediately for intravenous fluids. There tests will also be done to find the cause of persistent vomiting. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
