Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of fever, cough and vomiting in a toddler , which is due to Upper Respiratory Tract Infection also known as Common Cold and as it is Viral infection .I would suggest you to give her anti allergic like Benadryl, Crocin syrup.Put saline nasal spray, give her Steam inhalation and use a humidifier in her room.

Consult pediatrician for proper examination . Doctor may prescribe proper course of antiviral medication such Acyclovir.

- Drink plenty of fluids to rehydrate body.

- Give your baaby proper rest.

- You should do tepid sponging if fever increases.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
