Brief Answer:
Do not forget ORS.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

Your doctor has rightly prescribed Ondem and Junior Lanzol. However, he needs to take plenty of fluids, especially ORS (oral rehydration solution) in order to make up for the salt and water lost. The adequacy of this would be evident if he passes urine at normal frequency. The yellow fluid after vomiting is actually due to accumulation of bilious secretions.

I would also insist you to give him levocetrizine once daily for the next few days in order to reduce the runny nose.

Let me know if I could help further.
