Hi,
Your girl is suffering from infection in the ear,vomiting is common with high temperature or infection spreading to gastro intestinal tract.
She may require an antibiotic treatment and antipyretic liquid but for this you consult your pediatrician and take his opinion.

Sore throat x6 days on one side. Swelling. Pain in ear. 100 fever. Neg for mono, CBC normal. Tonsil abscess ruled out by doctor. States this is viral. Is it possible for symptoms to worsen as a virus at this point? Today is first day of fever. Blood was drawn this morning. Thank you.

Hi, I often get a pain near my right ear and my jaw feels like it s locking my daughter suggested it may be vertigo. I have looked at all the symptoms and purity much can relate to all of them. However I also get tightness across my back like a muscle spasm. I feel like I am going to faint. Weakness in legs. Etc. I have put this in the past down to panic attacks. And I have learnt how to deal with them. How do I find out what might be wrong. I am tired of feeling unwell. Thanks Michelle
