Brief Answer:
viral infection.

Detailed Answer:
Your child is suffering from acute viral infection.
If the fever is only for 3 days then you can treat at home conservatively. But if the fever is more than 3 days, child very sick, completely stopped feeding and less active then you'll have to consult a pediatrician. For vomiting you can give her 2.5 ml of SYR. EMESET. 20 minutes before feeding. Continue the pacimol drops for fever and for cold and cough give SYR. ALLERID 2 ml 3 times a day for 2 days.

Any query do get back.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Bland diet.

Detailed Answer:
If you have started cow's milk recently then stop and give the formula milk. If given from more than 2 to 3 months and child had no issues then continue cow's milk.
Give a bland diet like kichidi, poridge, soups and more liquid diet.

Take care.
