Child's head seemed hot on sleeping, applied damp cloth, gave medicine, woke up and vomited green, had green in stool. Emergency?

Hello my 4 year old daughter was fine all day right as i put her down for bed i noticed her head was hot i took her temp it was 102.3 i gave her tylenol , put a damp washcloth on her head and kept the sheets off of her. She woke up and vommited green which im not sure if it is something she ate or bile? Her fever is down to 101.9. She had some green stool this morning and last week i had a severe 24 hr stomach virus. Do you think it is necessary to wake her and take her to the ER or should i wait and see how she feels in the morning?

Thank you for your query.

As you had an intestinal infection last week it is quite possible that your daughter has contracted the infection from you. You can repeat Tylenol 4-6 hrly and do whole body sponging to reduce the temperature. You can wait till morning to review the situation before taking a call to take her to the ER. Hopefully things shall settle down.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter a speedy recovery.
