How can I stop my child from throwing up and his diarrhea and cough ?

My son is 16 months and had a cold that started about 2 weeks ago. As of Tuesday last week he started throwing up and a couple days of it was non stop. When I brought him to the docs that following Friday they just told me to keep him hydrated(he also had diarrhea ) and bring him back if it doesn t get better by Monday. By Monday he stopped throwing up and yesterday there was no throwing up but he has a raspy cough. today he started throwing up again and still has the cough yet the doctors when I just called just told me to keep him hydrated. should i take him somewhere anyway?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
Your child must be having phlegm with the cough, the phelgm when it gets struck in the throat can induce vomiting. He requires a mucolytic to reduce these symptoms. Also use saline nasal drops 2 drops 3 times/day. if you can consult a good child specialist to rule out other causes.
