What causes persisting vomiting?

Hello my name is Katherine I have a 19 month old boy who has been throwing up in the middle of the night or mid morning for the past 3-4 days now. He doesn t seem to act sick, runs around like his normal self. Has a little appetite but seems fine. I m not sure whats wrong with him but I just want to make sure that he is fine and doesn t have anything serious going on.

Hello,

You should take an antiemetic for your child in the doses depends on how much your child weighs. You should consume liquids and food. If it lasts more than two to three others day, or you see that your child dehydrated go visit a doctor. You can use Tresol giving it one tablespoon every hour to substitute the liquids lost with vomit.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Emilda Belortaja
