Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic
Most vomiting is caused by a viral infection of the stomach or food poisoning from eating poorly refrigerated food. Usually, a child whose vomiting is caused by a virus also has diarrhea. If your child has vomiting without diarrhea and it lasts more than 24 hours.The vomiting usually stops in 6 to 24 hours. Changes in the diet can prevent excessive vomiting and dehydration. IF her vomiting history is more then 24 hours you should visit your family physician.
