My five year old frequently suffers from mild fevers accompanied by stomach pain and vomiting of thick excessive and sometimes foamy saliva. She also has bad breath even after just brushing her teeth. These symptoms happen a few days in a row, go away, come back a week later, go away again and come back again, sometimes month or more later. What is this?

Hello, thanks for the query to H.C.M.C.
Stomach pain,vomiting,foamy saliva and of course bad smell breath, off and on.
It is a case of indigestion at first instance.
2nd and most foremost reason may be due to over feeding as I have seen this in so many cases. Fault is not with parents but due to affection and love to their spouse, parents forget that in one day a small child can not become adult.
Please don't take it otherwise as I am not blaming you as this is a common features that we forget common thing that the nature will take its course and as age passes child will become young.
When there is indigestion than there is bad smelling breath, and stomach pain, vomiting.
Pl control the diet and still there is no improvement done a blood test and see the level of bilirubin and also note down the level of E S R.
Is any abnormality consult a doctor. GOOD LUCK.
