Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Worms may not be the cause of every abdominal discomfort. Pain abdomen or abdominal discomfort in children could be because of several causes. One of them could be gastritis. First the nausea and vomiting should be controlled with antiemetic.
Other cause could be food poisoning. In this several members who consumed the same food will be affected.
We should also prevent dehydration from occuring in a case of vomiting. ORS (oral rehydration solution) is useful in such cases. If that is not available any fluid that contains salt and sugar is useful.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
