Toddler Vomiting while sleeping.

My 3 year old has woken up around the same time for the past four nights, crying and then vomiting. During the day she seems fine, she has only had a decrease in appetite over the last two days. She is running a slight fever thats around 99. I took her to the ER yesterday and she was put on amoxicillan because they said that she has a bladder infection. She is still vomiting. WHat should I do?

Your doctor has put her on correct medication. In addition probably she may require small dose of antiemtic. Your doctor will help you.

Hi,
welcome to healthcare magic.
How many times is she vomiting-only at night? Does she have signs of dehydration-check with your paeditrician?Is she feeling lethargic,irritated?how is her thirst? urine output?
I think,urine test might have done and culture sensitivity (report takes 1-2 days)to determine specific bacteria and antibiotic might be awaiting.
Take the full course of antibiotic prescribed otherwise recurrence can happen.
Give her plenty of fluids which helps to flush the infection.
Encourage her to urinate regularly,kids ignore the urge, rather play or just ignore and stasis of urine will help microorganism grow better.
Wish her good health.

My daughter is a crohn's sufferer, diagnosed 12 months ago. She is on immunosuppressants and suffers repeat bladder infections. The crohn's itself is under control (we think) but today she is in pain again with an urgent need to pass water and there has been blood in her urine which has been absent with previous infections. She has mentioned her illness to doctors when getting treatment for "water infections" and they have been fairly dismissive of a link to crohns. The problem is we do not know what to expect if a flare-up occurs. Could this latest symptom (blood in her urine) be a symptom of flare-up or should we stop being concerned and assume it is another water/bladder infection? I would like her to go to A&E and get it checked but don't want to touble doctors unnecessarily.

Hi!. I'm having some difficulties in the procedure called Irrigating cystoclysis...I found the answers but I can't reason out why..

-to restore or maintain the patency of the bladder
•     to prevent formation of calcific deposits in and around the indwelling catheter
•     to relieve bladder spasm
•     to drain the bladder when acute urinary retention is present
•     to irrigate bladder with a medication to treat an infection or local bladder irritation

why is it cystoclysis is indicated for post genito-urinary surgery, urinary tract infection and also in prostatic hematuria?..
