Thanks for writing to health care magic.

What is the temperature like?
Is your kid breathing fast?
Are there any chest retractions (in drawing of chest)?

Your kid may require antibiotics after examination by your pediatrician.

Nose block may be treated with normal saline drops to clear the block.

Please reply in detail so that we can help you better.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Your child seems to have a upper respiratory tract infection could be due to a virus.

Continue paracetamol syrup in prescribed dosage for fever.

The vomitings may be due to the swallowed mucus from the respiratory tract which usually causes gastric irritation and vomitings.

Some times child will have post tussive vomitings which occur after a bout of cough due to pressure on vomitind centre which is closely located to the cough centre.

And consult the pediatrician for the examination of the child, his throat, and lungs to look for any focus of infection and for antibiotic course if required.

Hope I have answered your query.
