Vomiting Accompanied By Diarrhea, As Well As Excessive Cold Sweat?
I have experienced pain such as vomiting and diarrhea for 3hrs. The first day was just vomiting, the second day was accompanied by diarrhea, day 3 until I fainted, excessive cold sweat. 3x the treatment does not change, do you need hospital referral?
Hello Liann, thank you for asking.
Symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea are generally related to problems in the digestive tract. Digestive problems can be in the form of stomach disorders, intestinal infections, or infection of the large intestine. Vomiting and diarrhea can also be part of other diseases that are systemic, such as dengue or chikungunya. In general, if the illness is acute (only lasts a few days), the infection is caused by a virus. Rotavirus most often causes digestive disorders.
Gastrointestinal infections due to viruses generally can heal itself. However, if vomiting and diarrhea can not be overcome at home, and the amount of fluid intake is very minimal, then you should indeed go to the hospital. The main therapy is fluid, so if it can still be treated at home, it is better after vomiting and diarrhea after drinking one glass (200 ml) ORS. If it is indeed hospitalized, the doctor will insert fluid through an IV, so that dehydration does not occur.
In addition, the doctor will also do a blood sample analysis to find out your current condition and find out the cause. People with vomiting and diarrhea are at risk of dehydration and ion deficiency. Correction of liquids and ions will be given if found below normal values.
Thus a brief explanation that I can give. May be useful. Regards.
