Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.Your child is suffering from viral gastroenteritis.If the vomiting has stopped then give him some probiotics. Avoid milk,fruit drinks and wheat products. Redotril is ok but lomotil should be avoided at all costs.Give your child lots of fluids and ORS-zinc preparation.Hope this answers your query.Wishing your child a speedy recovery.Have a nice day.
