I'm an Intensive Care Registered Nurse. Just need some more info to help. 1) how old is the child? 2) does the child have a fever? - If no thermometer, is child flushed (red cheeks/forehead), sweaty/clammy, and does face/ underarms feel warmer than normal. The child might say they feel cold but feel hot to the touch. 3) Can child keep anything down at all? Or does even a sip of water make child vomit? 4) If you lay the child on their back and gently press on stomach - work in a circle around the belly button - does it hurt anywhere and are there any hard areas? 5) When did child last poo and was it normal? 6)What does the vomit look like? Does it look like it has coffee grounds in it? Did it look like it had blood in it? Thick like food vomit or thin and watery? 7) Does child have any other health issues? 8) Has the child been around anyone that is sick recently? 9) What country do you live in?
Doctor. Theyll be very dehydrated and that can be very serious. If they are still throwing up you need that med that stops it. Otherwise the child really really needs fluids if he can keep them down. water or flat ginger ale and later clear broths and sports drinks to replace electrolytes. i like mixing Sport Time fruit punch flavor and Sprite when im sick. No caffiene as that will cause further dehydration.
