2 year old suffering from vomiting and sickness,diagnosed with UTI and runny nose

My 2 year old daughter has a 38.5 degree C temp. She vomited this morning (5 mins after she awoke so no food/drink) but only had a temp of 37 degrees then. She has been on & off sick now for over 1 month. (It began on 14 Feb 2011). I am getting concerned that there is something underlying. Two weeks ago she had a UTI which cleared up with oral antibiotics although she now seems to have a white discharge in the vaginal area which Dr has told me not to worry about. 4 weeks ago she was vomiting on and off for over a week. There are quite a few foods now that she literally cannot stomach (she automatically throws them up if she has them). Currently she is quite snotty (clear) with a runny nose that I have been treating with Vit C & Bioflavanoids. These are all seeming unrelated things but for over a month there has been no break in the various illnesses. Is there something she should be tested for? I an struggling to continue to believe this is a run of bad luck as doctors are tellling me. She weighs 11.7kilos, Length 98cm and Head Circumference 47cm (as of 15/03/2011).

Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
She may be having Gastroenteritis. She needs a thorough blood work up along with urine examination and Ultrasound scan if necessary. Viral or Bacterial infection and Parasitic infestation has to be ruled out. Is her abdomen swollen or is she having diarrhea or constipation along with vomiting? If yes, then do not wait for anything, just take her to a Pediatrician to get her evaluated for Pyloric stenosis or Intussusception. Good Luck.

Homeopath Dr. Rangadhar Satapathy's  Response
Greetings from health care magic
This off and on various complain have many reasons. But the 1st thing is as he is only two year of child her immnity is very low to resist different thrush of infection at some period of time. So there are the symptoms of different ailment. Yes she requires the treatment as per the symptoms. But side by side it is highly essential to enhance her immune power to resist those infection. For it some thing change you have to bring. first give her healthy foods like natural fruits, vegetables, citrous fruits. Avoid all junk, fast, artificial processsing foods. avoid giving chilled , frezed food, ice cream, chocolat. Besides that start a purely constitutional homeopathy treatment which will help to enhance her own body immune power. So that she will not fall again and again by different health problems.
Hope it will help you.
Thank you
