you can give another dose; follow as advised

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
This is Dr. Swarnava Dattagupta answering your query.

I understand your concern.
If such a patient comes to me, I would suggest soft bland diet for 3 days. As the patient is a child, dehydration can occur easily. So ORS solution should be given in sips to tackle dehydration and fluid loss. Also, anti vomiting medications like ondansetran can be given. You have given emeset. It can be given thrice daily. So the dose can be repeated after 6-8 hours. If loose stool occurs alongwith, antibiotics might be started.

Hope this was useful.
Consult me for further queries.
