Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Vomiting and defecation or also known as vomiting, is a condition that can affect everyone from all walks of life. The causes also vary, it can be due to viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections. How the agent that causes this disease can enter a person, can be due to less hygienic food, low endurance, a dirty environment, not washing hands regularly, and in children and the elderly, it can also be caused by eating foods that are difficult to process by digestion.
When vomiting occurs, especially in children, the most concern is the child's potential to experience dehydration or lack of fluids because a lot of fluids are leaking out of their body. Signs of dehydration in children can include drastic weight loss, decreased appetite, infrequent urination, more visible eyelids, dry mouth, limpness, skin becomes dense, the child looks restless, when crying does not come out of tears and passing darker or cloudy urine. If this happens, immediately take your child to the nearest emergency room to be given fluids through an IV. Regarding the infection itself, the majority can heal on its own over time.
But of course, if conditions do not improve at all, a more in-depth evaluation must be carried out. Our advice is that if your child has not previously received treatment from a pediatrician, check with a pediatrician. If so, come back for control and do the evaluation. Your pediatrician may order stool tests, x-rays, or even endoscopy to see the structure of the digestive tract if necessary. The handling will depend on the results of this examination.
In the meantime, keep making sure your child has his fluid needs met, keep all family members clean, and check with the pediatrician if the condition does not improve. So, hopefully it answers your question.
