User :   My son is 3 years and 9 months, off late we have noticed that he has developed a pattern whereby he starts to vomit (has temperature), complains of pain in the stomach after having Non Veg- food(Fish / chicken / Egg). This subsides within a day or two; we give the following medicines;
1.     Ondem for vomiting
2.     Digene to suppress his gastritis
3.     Parcemtol for fever
Vegetarian food is OK with him, but this pattern is only for the past 1 month. Earlier he was comfortable all types of food.

Doctor :   try and avoid all the foods he has had vomiting uptil now and go ahead with these further tests
User :   can you pls name a few test which we can get done ..
Doctor :   1) a gastroenterology opinion to look for any other serious cause like stricture or intestinal problem. for this he might need an endoscopy to be done.
Doctor :   2) an allergen patch testing for all the food items to see if he has particular allergies to protiens
User :   ok..
Doctor :   3) give him bland food for few days, i mean food without much oil, spice and fried things. try this for next 15 days
User :   ok..
Doctor :   4) give him small meals divided over 6-8 times a day say about every 2 hours give him something t o eat
Doctor :   it will confirm if the gastritis is due to far spacing of food or teh non veg food
Doctor :   go ahead with these steps and see what outcome it shows
