Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this vomiting that you have reported. These are suggestive of a viral disease. I will recommend that you send a picture to me for review to make sure this is a viral disease and needs no antibiotics. For now, enough fluids and food intake would be okay. If vomiting becomes so much of a concern, then I would recommend that we try medications for that.

I hope to receive the image for review and more insights on the problem and the way forward from me.
