My Daughter Is 6 Years Old.?
my child mutah, this is already given the medicine for nausea, vomiting again. What should I do for further help?
Thank you for the question.
Vomiting in children can be caused by:
Gastrointestinal disorders, such as dyspepsia, food allergies, intestinal obstruction, gastroenteritis, carbohydrate malabsorption, poisoning
Respiratory disorders, such as allergies, infections, irritation, aspiration of foreign bodies
Other factors, such as kidney disorders, urinary tract infections, dengue fever, liver disorders, head injuries, brain tumors, meningitis, metabolic disorders, drug effects, etc.
If vomiting occurs less than 5 times a day, without being accompanied by fever for more than 3 days, weakness, dehydration, loss of consciousness, stiff neck, tightness, and other severe complaints, you should not panic. The current outbreak of COVID-19 requires you to stay at home, and don't rush your child to see a doctor unless it's urgent. So, if your child's condition is mild, first try the following efforts:
Give children plenty to drink, make ORS if necessary
Give children food that is easily digested, small but frequent portions, not too spicy, let alone bersantan, and excessive gassing
Avoid children from consuming excessive tea, milk, chocolate and soda
Only give children clean, well-cooked food and drink
Give children foods that contain zinc, for example meat, shrimp, seeds, eggs
Let your child get plenty of rest, don't run and jump around excessively
Conversely, if vomiting occurs very often (more than 10 times a day) or danger signs appear as we alluded to before, do not delay checking her directly to the doctor or pediatrician to be treated further yes ..
I hope this helps.
