Welcome to HCM.

It is nice to know that your son has been de-wormed. Since he is vomiting and toilet frequency has increased, make sure he is well hydrated, give him re-hydrating fluids orally and soups to maintain the electrolyte content of the body system.

Make sure he is not eating any contaminated food, that may cause gastroenteritis like symptoms. Consult a paediatrician and get all LFT, liver function tests done to rule out any liver ailment, food poisoning or acute gastritis. Stool test ( routine and culture ) should be done.

Get him admitted in a hospital to avoid dehydration and worsening of the condition. Antiemetics, antacids can give him temporary relief. He may need injections and infusions for better recovery. Take care.
