Every once in awhile my 3 year old daughter throws up at night for a few nights in a row. It happens a half hour to hour after going to bed. While she usually has a cough/ runny nose when these vomiting episodes occur, she isn t coughing when she starts throwing up. She never throws up more than once.

I have a 2 yo son who has been vomiting for about a week. The last 3-4 days were usually in mornings or at night and not any other time of the day. Yesterday his stool came out a pale color. I brought him to the hospital the first night he threw up and was told it was probably a bug and to let it run its course but it s been almost a week he s been vomiting. He s still very energetic, no fever, or any other evidence of illness other than vomiting once or twice a day and his stool. It s only been pale for one day but more formed as opposed to before when it was very runny from lots of liquids and less solid foods. Is this something I should take him in for right away or should I wait it out another day or two?

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

My 20 year old daughter was recently on 1 week of Augmentin for flu like symptoms, with a fever ranging from 103-100+ for 5 days (fever broke and has stayed down since last Friday). She finished the antibiotics on Sunday and has since developed a rash that began on her hands and feet and has continued to spread to her arm and legs. It is not blister like nor is it on her torso or face. It does itch and over the counter cortisone cream isn t helping Could this be an allergic reaction? or due to the fever? Thanks in advance for your help! She had taken a Z pack before the augmentin

I live in Bangalore, recently I went to Chennai were I was severely affected and on 2nd June I visited a doctor who gave me medicine and I had to return from the station on 3rd june, since I had dizziness, severe cough but not temp. I did not eat 2 or 3 days then I met my family doctor after a very long period, he advised to meet an asthma specialist and he also suggested that I may have phlum in my lungs etc.

Could you kindly advise what specialist I should meet, I am registered with St Johns Bangalore.
