Greetings. Thank you for your questions.

First and foremost, we truly understand your concerns regarding your child condition. It is true that, if your child is having continuous vomiting, it is a matter that should be brought to medical attention in fear of something dangerous as the result of fall before.

However, there is other causes that might contributing to your child’s symptom such as:

  • Gastroenteritis from infection of viruses or bacteria
  • Food poisoning
  • Overeating

Since your child had been vomiting once only, I would advice you to watch out on these symptoms and seek medical attention if there is:

  • repeatedly vomiting and is unable to hold down fluids
  • dehydrated – can include a dry mouth, crying without producing tears, not wetting many nappies, and drowsiness
  • their vomit is green or contains blood
  • they have been vomiting for more than a day or two
  • develops sudden and severe stomach ache
  • they’re floppy, not active, irritable or less responsive

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions. In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor.
