Thanks for placing your query here.
I can appreciate your concerns about your daughter.
BACIGYL-N contains two medicines ie metronidazole + norfloxacin.
The vomitings she might be having is probably due to metronidazole compound present in the bacigyl-n.
If she has no fever , no blood or pus cells & no parasites seen in stool you can safely stop bacigyl -n.
Most like cause is viral diarrhea which stops itself.
If she has lots of nappy rashes you can get her stool tested for ph & reducing substances.
If the results suggests lactoise intolerance , a 2 weeks trial of a lactose free milk formula will work.
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
