Child had vomiting, stomach and chest pain. Due to pesticide exposure?

My child woke up vomiting about an hour ago around 1:00 am. There were 2 rounds of vomiting about 10 min apart. She complained of pain in the area between her stomach and chest before the 2 round of vomiting. I have told myself that it is just stomach virus, but this morning around 11:00 am I was treating some plants with seven dust and she was riding her bike near by and I worry that this vomiting could be a result of being exposed to some of the pesticide. I treated 3 plants by sprinkling the dust on them in our driveway area and she was riding her bike around the driveway.

thanku for your query,
well i understand your concern , according to me it is just a stomach flu that your baby is suffering from ,which is mostly viral in nature . give some antiemetic, like domperidone, for a day or two before feeds she will settle well. Do remember to give lot of fluids , soft diet, avoid giving much of milk and juices, give coconut water it works well.
Seven dust spray is quite safe , unless exposure is very high and child is known allergic ,or suffering from atopy , child can have problem . mostly the problems with spray are running nose and sneezing , not vomiting .
i hope i have answered your query according to your satisfaction
god bless
