Hi my daughter has the stomach flu. Was thowing up for about 5 hours on and off, slept most of the evening and now is able to eat but it hurts when she breaths. I am not sure if she is just sore from vomiting so much or if I should take her into urgent care?
HI Well come to HCM Your query being appreciated, viral infection may not needs any treatment if the symptom are not severs but care needs to be taken for dehydration only, and be patience it may takes few days for cures if it is the confirmed viral infection, else differential diagnosis or the conditions would be matter of concern, your main query if the child is doing well, having some bad sign and symptoms like uncontrolled vomiting, fever, then you can see the ER hope this information helps.
