What Causes Vomiting In A Child After Waking Up Immediately?
Proper fluid replacement is the key
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
I have gone carefully through your query. Your child has an episode of gastritis, possibly due to viral cause. Give some antiemetic like Ondansetron. Proper fluid replenishment with ORS (oral rehydration solution) should be done. Unless this is done, it could lead to fluid and salt depletion. Giving juicy fruits like citrus fruits should help in replenishing the salts and would ease the situation. You also need to give some antiemetic like ondansetron when needed. Give paracetamol or acetaminophen to bring down the temperature, if raised. Also give tepid sponging.
You may give Lanzol Junior for the next few days. Please be patient. But if the child grows lethargic you would have to rush her to the hospital. Monitor the urine output. If it is reduced you would need to increase the fluid intake and if that does not suffice you might need to visit the hospital.
