Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi dear,
Vomiting probably is reflux. One or two vomitings can happen normally in any child. Just don't put her in the lying position immediately after feeding. Put her in an elevated position & burping is recommended. As long as the baby is gaining weight some amount of vomiting is acceptable. Rash might not be related to vomiting. Just apply calamine lotion and she will be fine in few days. If problem persists, show her to a pediatrician to be sure that everything is fine.

Take care
