thanks for writing to health care magic.

I would suspect intestinal obstruction in a kid having distension of abdomen and vomitings.......

Your kids needs to be investigated further for the cause ............

What is the color of the vomit.......
is it bile stained or not..........

Was he started on intravenous fluids or not as he is vomiting continuously
Please reply with further details

You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
