Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Vomiting in children can be caused by the following:
Inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract (gastroenteritis)
Food / drink intake that exceeds the capacity of the stomach
Food allergies. This condition can be accompanied by diarrhea, hives, or swelling in the body
Space-squeezing processes in the central nervous system, such as bleeding or brain tumors.
The condition of continuous vomiting, can result in a lack of fluids, which in the medical world is called dehydration. In moderate dehydration, usually the child will appear fussy and ask to drink more often. However, in severe conditions, the child will appear weak, tend to sleep all the time, do not want to eat / drink, the body takes care of it, the skin pinches slowly again, the eyes of a cowong. This condition of severe dehydration, if not treated immediately, can even lead to death.
Seeing your exposure, it is feared that your child's excessive drowsiness and weakness may indicate severe dehydration. For that, you should immediately go to the nearest emergency room to be examined by a general practitioner and appropriate treatment, such as fluid infusions. In addition, the doctor will track the cause of vomiting in your child and, if necessary, support tests such as blood tests or refer to the pediatrician for further tracking.
Things that can be done to support the improvement of conditions:
Wash your hands every time you prepare a meal for your child
Make sure the food you eat is clean and not contaminated
Give food / drink a little, but more often to reduce nausea because the stomach is too full of food
Adequate the need for anal fluids
Get enough nutrition for children. Provide highly nutritious and age-appropriate food. It is best if food is given in a soft consistency. Avoid solid food first while still vomiting
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
