Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

You are most likely suffering from Acute viral gastroenteritis & effect on liver.
Presence of vomiting and watery shit , coughing, body ache along with loss of appetite suggests the diagnosis and viral cause for all the symptoms.
Viral infections has slight effect on liver also and patients generally suffers from loss of appetite.
As such these defined symptoms have no correlation with asthma & GERD.

You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
Although symptoms suggests viral cause and as such there is no need of treatment for viral illness as it recovers itself within 3-4 days.
But its very difficult to predict the exact cause and you should take proper treatment for fast recovery of symptoms.
You should take complete antibiotic course, probiotics and anti emetics (domperidone or metoclopromide).
You should also take cough suppressants and muscle relaxants for relief of your symptoms.
Avoid milk and all milk products, sour and cold drinks, oily food.

Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

I had my lower lip swell up, left side about a month ago. I took a Benedryl with no immediate effect and the swelling subsided in about 36 hours. Two weeks later my lower lip swole up again this time on my right side, I took a sinus/ allergy OTC, and once again no immediate effect and the swelling subsided in about 36 hours. Have had a rash which began with a small rough spot on my ankle, loosely following as the rash grew in size, a naturopathic protocol consistent with a yeast over- growth using probiotics and anti-candida supplements. Last week consulted with a naturopathic doctor and she suggested that my rash looks like eczema, not candida, but that the swelling and the rash even as their triggers may be different in specific that both are in response to my body being overloaded with toxins. Tomorrow I begin a detox cleanse and have an appointment with a dermatologist for the skin issue. I have mostly been on an anti-inflammatory diet for a week and have not used any Candida kill supplements for 2 weeks. My most acute issue, is a third swelling which began today almost immediately after drinking a mostly veg smoothie, beginning on my upper lip this time and spreading to my right cheek. I m already moving toward some necessary lifestyle changes. I have taken a couple of benedryls today. Any suggestions you could give me would be helpful. Thank you, signed Puffyface.

I have been suffering from indigestion, bloating after eating and a mild IBS and have been using prebiotics and probiotics for the last over a year. It did not prove effective and my condition continues. It will be much appreciated if you would be good enough to prescribe some supplements which could be available in U.K. I live in London.
