Persistent fever, motrin treatment, bright yellow vomit with brown or red specks, Cause?

My 5 year old son has had a fever since Friday. We have been treating it with Motrin. He really doesn t have an appetite but he is eating freezies. This morning he began to vomit . It was a brightish yellow and clear with specks of brown or red in it. I have three boys and have never seen that. I m debating whether or not he should be seen.

If the fever still persists and he has started vomiting it is better you take him to a doctor. If the fever has subsided, he looks well and vomiting is not frequent you may wait for some time. Give him bland diet-avoid oily and spicy food. Vomited material may be yellow. If you noticed brown or red specks after several bouts of vomiting it may be blood. Repeated vomiting may cause some damage to the lining of stomach and cause minor bleed. It will stop once vomiting is controlled. If he has severe abdominal pain he should be seen by a doctor asap.
