Pediatrician 's  Response
Dear sindhu2202 Children get mesenteric lymphadenitis (Inflamation of mesenteric glands)
when they get sore throat/ear infection. If the infection affect the internal ear or labyrinth
the child will vomit and also gets dizzy spells. Mesenteric glands may remain painful for some time.
I think that is the problem. Stomach ache will settle down slowly. I think in the mean time
give him extra fluid to keep hydration and paracetamol syrup(5mgm/5ml) 2.5mls three times daily.
Please take him to Paeditrician to check his ears and throat. kindest regards Dr S.K.Mukherjee
