Hello Apin, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Vomiting that occurs quite often accompanied by disruption of food and fluid intake in children is one condition that requires immediate treatment by a doctor because the condition can quickly cause a state of dehydration (lack of fluids) in a child, especially if vomiting This makes your child weaker than usual, because it can be a sign of severe dehydration in children and if your child experiences severe dehydration the condition is very dangerous and requires treatment as soon as possible to return the fluids in the hospital emergency room.
Therefore, seeing the complaints experienced by your child, it is highly recommended to immediately bring your child to the hospital emergency room for an evaluation of his condition and also to get first aid in the form of giving intravenous fluids to overcome his condition. After the dangerous condition is resolved, the new doctor will determine what causes your child's complaints that may be caused by food poisoning, viral infections of the gastrointestinal tract, bacterial infections of the gastrointestinal tract and others. The doctor will ask your child to do some tests such as blood tests and others, depending on the doctor's consideration, to help determine what causes the complaint. After that, it is decided what further therapy should be given to your child, whether or not to require hospitalization and also what medications your child should consume.
While at home and also on the way to the hospital, you should still try to give drinking water or white milk to your child to help keep your child from becoming dehydrated.
I hope this helps.
