Need medication for vomiting & cough

My 18 month old has been throwing up her milk for the last month. And when she starts to throw it up she goes in a horrible coughing spell and then it finally comes out and she gags when it comes out because its chunky, thick, cottage cheese, curdled milk

Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

The cause of vomiting and coughing is likely to be gastro-oesophageal reflux. GERD is sometimes seen in children, the reflux induces coughing.

I would suggest you the following
1. Semi solid feeds
2. Head up while sleeping
3. Gastric prokinetic drug like Domperidone will be effective.

In the event the symptoms persists then kindly consult your Pediatrician

Do get back to me for further queries

Take Care
