What’s the reason, doctor, until he can vomit food…my child’s weight has started to decrease from 21 to 20 kg…rnDoes he need to have his lungs checked?
What happens to your child can be caused by various possibilities such as:
ARI Bronchitis Tuberculosis infection Other infectious diseases
Coughing that is too loud and persistent can indeed cause vomiting in children because the vomiting reflex is triggered. ARI is an upper respiratory tract infection which can cause coughing and is usually accompanied by a runny nose. Bronchitis is an inflammation of the middle airways that can also cause a cough that can be accompanied by shortness of breath and wheezing. Tuberculosis infection is also one of the causes of a cough that does not go away and also weight loss. Weight loss can also be caused by vomiting experienced by your child, resulting in reduced nutrition he needs. Other infectious diseases such as typhoid fever, dengue fever and others can also trigger vomiting.
It's a good idea to check with your doctor or have your child checked by a pediatrician. You can bring all the files or medications that have been given so that the examination does not repeat from the beginning. Later, in addition to direct examination, the doctor will also need additional examinations such as x-rays, blood or others to help establish the diagnosis. Therapy will be tailored to what your child is experiencing.
I hope this helps.
