How to cure my 5 years old daughter, she's been throwing up and can't keep any food down since Sunday night?

Report as

There is no cure for a ailment that is not know. If this has been happening since Sunday night then you need to get her to a doctor asap. There is no reason to wait this long. You need to be safe and have her checked.

Please see a doctor now..She can become dehydrated [loss of liquids] and become very ill. Usually coke soda will help,
but it has been too long to home treat the child now..I'm sure you want what is best for your precious daughter..Take care

She sounds like she needs urgent care. Children dehydrate fast and that is life threatening. If she has not been keeping down clear fluids for almost 2 days she could be in trouble. Just take her to a clinic or an ER now.

I can't believe you haven't gone to a dr yet. Are u crazy? Get medical help, and hopefully your daughter feels better soon. Also i hope you wise up.

No I'm not crazy, are you? Don't tell me to wise up when you don't know me!! Is it wrong for me to asked for public opinions?

I have to agree with Brian, why wouldn't you have taken her to a doctor?

If it doesn't seem too serious, put her on an effective diet called BRAT, for a few days just feed her plain foods like bananas, rice, applesauce and toast. Occasionally give her pepto bismol or a anti acid. If it continues get her to a doctor immediately.

GO TO THE DOCTOR! You must not be a very smart parent because you can't even take your child to a doctor, you have to ask this website.

If its any concern to you... I'm a damn good father, her mother is a nurse. I asked these types of questions to see if there's anything else that would help like a public's opinions, a third opinion!! Idiot

Her mother is a nurse so why didn't she think of taking her to see a doctor? I'm not trying to rag on you or say you're a bad parent but I'm really stumped on this

So 48 hours is starting to get to the concerned stage.
Did you try pediolyte?
Is there a fever?
She needs to go to the doctor if it doesn't improve by tomorrow.
Don't let some responses make you feel like a bad mother. It's been 2 days!

This is exactly why the health care system is in the pits.
#1 -This is a 5 year old child not a 5 day old infant.
#2 - It's only been 2 days people! You want her to run to the ER for vomiting x 2 days? Who is going to pay this bill?
#3 - what will they do for her? Iv fluids with electrolytes which is the same as pediolyte.
#4 - Kids get better as fast as they get sick. If there are no other symptoms give it another 24 hours with trying the pediolyte or Gatorade.
#5 - the last thing a mother needs is for a bunch of people coming down on her just like I have seen here.

If not better in 3 days despite Gatorade & if no fever take her to her private doctor & calmly tell him whats wrong and what you have tried.

Save the ER for those that really need life-saving measures.
Save the funding so the hospitals can continue to operate.

I'm sick of seeing these kids being brought in by ambulance that have been sick for a few days but couldn't get to the kids doc because they were busy working!
Or certain religions whose parents work during the week and along comes the Sabbath and they cant drive because they can't according to their religion so here comes the call to an ambulance & go to the ER where the baby is exposed to all sorts of germs.
Tax payer gets that bill too!
I am so ready for changes in the medical care system of this country!

I had the same thing twice. It is most likely a 24-hour tummy bug. You can't really cure her, but carbonated drinks like Ginger Ale will help.
