10 year old having continuous vomiting. Could this be due to stomach virus?

Hi I have a 10 year old girl shes about 54 inches 65lbs we spent all day yesterday at disneyworld walking around it was pretty hot about 90 when we got home last night she was vomiting all night also so far this morning it is still continuing i am continuing to keep giving her water. I normally would chalk this up to being some sort of bug but this happened the last few times we spent the day outside somewhere she always spends the rest of that day or the next with what looks like a stomach virus. any ideas what this could be?

Thanks for the query
As your information it seems that this vomiting is due to heat exhaustion. Heat exhaustion happens when you do intense physical activity in hot conditions without drinking enough liquids. It can also be due to some food poisoning if she had ate something wrong. But the same should have happened in others also who have consumed the food. You just continue to maintain her hydration by giving her ORS frequently. She also needs some antiemetic may be injectable depending upon the oral tolerance.
Even then if she continue to vomit and oral intake is poor then treatment with Intravenous fluid may be needed.
I hope this answers your query well
Wish you and your family good health
With regards
