Hello Kikky, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Coughing with colds and vomiting in children can be a symptom of several possible diseases, such as:
ISPA Influenza Pneumonia Tuberculosis and others Due to the many possibilities, then you should check your child to the doctor to get an examination first. Your child may be asked to do several kinds of tests depending on the doctor's consideration, such as blood tests, chest x-rays, and others. These examinations aim to help determine the possible cause of your child's complaints. After determined, the new doctor will also determine the right medicine for your child.
For now, you can try giving cough medicines that are sold in general at pharmacies, such as cold medicine and cough medicines for children, OBH and others according to adjusting the dosage according to the package. Do not give any antibiotics without doctor's advice, and continue breastfeeding or milk as usual. If your child experiences vomiting that continues to make your child unable to drink, looks very thirsty or looks weak, immediately take your child to the hospital emergency room.
I hope this helps.
