Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid) can affect anyone, children are no exception. This condition is usually caused by improper eating patterns, for example often late eating, excessive consumption of acidic, spicy, or oily foods, and side effects after consuming certain drugs. In addition to vomiting, dyspepsia can also make a child experience bowel disorders and become appetiteless, so that it leads to weakness, fussing, and growth can be disrupted if not handled properly.
However, it is not only dyspepsia that can cause vomiting. Vomiting can also occur due to other causes, such as digestive infections, intolerance, malabsorption, allergies, or food poisoning, inflammation of the intestine, volvulus, intussusception, and so on. If the vomiting that your child is experiencing is massive enough, that is to exceed 5 times a day, with a sufficient amount of vomit, you should check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician. Not only so that the disease is identified earlier, an early doctor's examination is also useful in preventing the risk of dangerous complications, for example dehydration or disruption of electrolyte balance in the body.
At this time, you can do the following tips first:
Stay calm, no need to panic
Feed your child breast milk as often as possible, also give him enough to drink
Even though your child won't eat, keep trying to feed him a little, but often (don't force it)
Avoid giving acidic, spicy, and oily foods to children
Do not get used to snacks, especially food or drinks that are not clear of cleanliness
Also minimizing the provision of instant food or drinks to children
Do not carelessly give children drugs without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
