Child vomits at night, uncontrolled bowel movements. No fever, upset tummy. What should I do?

my 10 yr old daughter seems fine all day, at night she throws up and also poops her pants -- everytime. This happened 2 weeks ago, and twice tonight in the last 4 hours. It has happened before but I wasn t tracking the dates. She doesn t have a fever and doesn t complain of any other symptoms other than an upset tummy. She has been asleep and wakes up to puke and poop. What should I do?

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
She is suffering from some type of gastritis or gastroenteritis.This usually happens after she has taken food from outside or has a acute exercerbation of pre existing gastritis. Give her a antiemetic like ondansetron and some probiotics.Give her a lot of fluids and keep her at home. If she persists to have vomiting and seems to be dehydrated consult a physician.Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
