Child having vomitting, stomach cramps. passed mucous in stools after breakfast. Semi-solid stools after taking Ondansetron. Suggestions?

My 5 year 4 month old daughter woke up early in the morning at 4 irritated and puked after 5 minutes and then again after one hour and then slept sound and then again vomited at around 7 in the morning with very less residual and then also started complaining of abdominal cramps and pain and went for toilet with normal stools . Later she ate breakfast of potato, cauliflower and a bread which after 30 minutes she vomited all and then passed mucus stools in her pants. Every time she puked she complained of abdominal cramp and twisted. Later in the afternoon, I gave her Sporlac and then two 5 ml dosage of Emeset (Ondansetron) at 2 hour interval. She went for toilet and had semi-solid stools after a span of 6 hours. Please suggest.

Colicky abdominal pain with mucoid stool and vomitus suggests some infection. You have given her sporlac and emeset, this is not enough. Give her cefixime with ornidazole for covering infection.
Continue feeding and also give adequate fluids. Give syrup zinc as this will help in early recovery.

Thank you for your query,
Your child is having Gastroenteritis which could be viral or bacterial.
You maintain the hydration status of the child by giving oral rehydrating solutions like ORS, lemon water, coconut water and dal water.
After each vomiting or loose motions you can give 100 to 200 ml sips by sips to balance the losses of water and electrolytes in stools and in vomitus.
Monitor her hydration status, activity and her urine output.
Consult your Pediatrician for examination and for specific treatment.
Hope i have answered your query.
