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.

Hi Doctor, My 14 month old daughter is diagnosed with Urinary tract infection.The infection has reached to a critical stage by the time we came to know about it WBC 100, RBC =5-7 with bacteria E.Coli.Then she was admitted and was given IV for three days. After 3 days she was put on an oral anitbiotic Orfloxin Since the infection was under control i.e. WBC = 20-25 but she didnt respond well to that anti. and within a week the WBC again went to around 50. She was then given Amicacyn injections for seven days. With these injections WBC count has come to normal but showd an increasing trend i.e. from 3-5 to 5-7 in last day of injection. So she has been put on Amoxylin. We consulted on more doctor and he prescribed Taxim for her. So I just want to know which to follow and is this an indication towards VUR or just that infection is chronic and hence taking a long time to vanish? Please help

He gets really bad abdominal pain and an upset stomach and the dr s here don t seem to be doing anything can you give an idea on what to do? \I have a daughter that has urinary tract infections all the time. She has had fevers for the last week,and she has lower abdominal pain and back pain. She has also been complaining of headaches and her shoulder joints and her knees are sore. She looks sick in the eyes, her eye lids are a little red and swollen. Her eyes were red as well and I think there is something wrong with her but I get the same run around from the dr s.
