The Child Vomits Frequently (already 3 Weeks)?
good afternoon Doctor,
Hello Dhyan, thank you for the question.
The vomiting condition is when the food or liquid in the stomach comes back out through the mouth. This condition is a condition that is quite common and occurs around us. However, the causes of this condition are quite varied and very numerous. Some of them are:
Use of certain drugs, such as antibiotics, anti-pain drugs or fever relievers, to chemotherapy drugs Gastric disorders, for example gastroparesis (disorders of the stomach muscles), stomach ulcers, acid reflux disease, etc. Smell a bad smell or feel disgust at something Infection of the digestive tract Motion sickness Vertigo A blockage in the intestine or digestive tract, so that food cannot reach the large intestine or anus (ileus) liver, bile and pancreatic disorders Food poisoning Increased pressure inside the skull (intra cranial), for example due to severe head injury or brain hemorrhage, it could also be due to a tumor in the brain. This condition often causes spraying vomiting without being preceded by nausea, and is an emergency condition that must be treated immediately. Anorexia nervosa, or a psychiatric disorder characterized by a fear of being overweight. This condition often causes the sufferer to do anything to get an ideal body weight, including by stimulating the gag reflex by inserting objects into his throat. Allergies to certain food ingredients, such as milk and so on. Because of the many causes of this condition, I highly recommend that your child be brought back to the doctor, especially to a pediatrician or an internal medicine doctor. Also pay attention to your child's behavior after eating, and what types of food are usually consumed and stimulate vomiting. For now, make sure your child's consumption of fluids is sufficient, so that he doesn't get dehydrated. If the child becomes very weak and does not want to eat at all, or experiences a decrease in consciousness and seizures, immediately take it to the nearest emergency room.
I hope this helps.
