Thank you for your query.

Penny is unlikely the cause of vomiting and loose stools. It has been nearly 10 days that your son swallowed the penny.

There can be a number of reasons for diarrhoea and vomiting. In case they persist it is advisable to consult your doctor. In the interim you can give your son plenty of oral fluids like lemonade, coconut water, oral rehdyrating solution (ORS), etc. so that he does not get dehydrated.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
