Hi Jose, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
Vomiting in children can be caused by several possibilities, including:
infections of the gastrointestinal tract and food poisoning allergies to food ingesting toxic substances obstruction or obstruction of the intestine, for example due to severe constipation, intussusception (entry of part of the intestine into the intestine in front of it), malrotation (twisted intestine), etc. head injury side effects of drugs excessive stress in children etc. You can try to first analyze the cause of vomiting in your child. If the child vomits because the child has been crying loudly and for a long time (excessive stress), then you have nothing to worry about. If the child has a fever along with vomiting and diarrhea, as long as the child is not dehydrated, there is probably nothing you need to worry about. Gastrointestinal infections in children are most often caused by viral infections which can go away on their own without any treatment. You just need to give your child more fluids.
If the child vomits after the child has a head injury, the child has a severe allergic reaction to food (for example, you also see a rash on itchy skin, swelling of the mouth and face, difficulty breathing), the child looks yellow, there are signs of dehydration in the child (sunken eyes , the mucosa is dry, the tears do not come out, the child looks weak, does not want to drink, urine is reduced and concentrated), or there is a decrease in consciousness in the child (the child sleeps all the time), you should immediately take your child to the hospital. Your child will need further tests such as blood tests, stool examination, CT scan (if there is a history of head injury), and other examinations deemed necessary.
For now, make sure your child is drinking enough. You can provide plain water, milk, electrolyte fluids, coconut water, household fluids (such as soup), juices, or whatever fluids your child wants to drink. Children who have gastrointestinal disorders are very normal if they don't want to eat. You don't need to force your child to eat too much, try to make foods that are soft and not too fibrous first so they are easier to swallow and digest. Let the child rest and sleep longer to help the healing period.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
