Brief Answer:
Likely to be due to gastritis.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone very carefully through your query. Your child's problem seems to be due to gastritis. A 7 hour long gap between meals would essentially lead to accumulation of stomach acids (which are meant to help in digestion but the food simply does not come). The excess acids thereby collect and irritate the stomach walls which leads to throwing up. This is therefore caused due to the injury caused by stomach acids. Needless to say that it also affects the appetite.

In order to provide relief, you need to ask for the following:
* Avoid spicy food. Take small but frequent meals. Avoid long gaps between meals.
* Give Lanzol Junior tablet (lansoprazole)/Nexium (esomeprazole) XXXXXXX once daily before breakfast.
* Give plenty of green leafy vegetables as well as other sources of dietary fibers. Take fiber supplements like isabgol/psyllium husk or senna. I would insist you to increase your dietary fiber intake.
* Regular playing or exercise for at 1 hour a day to keep the bowel movements proper.
* Give curd or yogurt on daily basis. It contains beneficial bacteria and should help.

Hope that helps.

Let me know if I could help further.

Brief Answer:
There are a number of possibilities to consider

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing back. The exact cause needs to be determined first.
It could be
* Physiological i.e. in course of normal functioning of the body
- ruptured follicles
- retrograde menstruation
- increase in ovarian permeability due to oestrogen influence
* Pathological
- ruptured ectopic
- pelvic inflammatory disease
- tubo-ovarian abscess
- pelvic abscess/hematoma
- hydatiform mole
- ovaraian cancer

As you might be able to understand, mere treatment with antibiotics would not suffice. The exact underlying cause needs to be identified and treated.
