actually there is no real co relation between the two. they might be having acute gastroenteritis, which is just an infection inthe stomach (most harmless viral infection) which might have been caught from some food they both ate from outside or so. the cold can be simple nasal blosk secondary to vomiting, dont give any treatment now. just plain saline nasal drops & steam inhalation will help. if vomiting is more can use some medicine to control that (like domstal syrup)
