How can I help my teen with bronchiolitis and vomiting?

How can I help my teen with bronchiolitis and vomiting?

Bronchiolitis: is a disease that young children get, not teens. Perhaps you are referring to bronchitis? If he/she is vomiting a lot, you should have them take small amounts of fluids more frequently & advance that slowly. If it's happening just w/ coughing, a cough med might help or an inhaler. Your teen should see his/her doctor if there is continued coughing or vomiting or if he/she has not been examined yet. ...Read more

1yr old with viral bronchiolitis.Saw pedi. And recieved bronciodolator and corticosteroid.Couging and vomiting up phlem.Is this normal for the meds?

Yes: Cough is a major symptom of bronchiolitis. When children cough it is fairly common for them to vomit because of weak les. No medicine has been found to be singularly effective in bronchilitis. The illness may last for 3-4 weeks. As long the child is not hypoxic and drinking well you just ride out the rough period. Antibiotics do not help as they are caused by viruses. ...Read more

My daughter has bronchiolitis RSV she is 3months old and is running a rectal temp of 100.0  and has been puking should I take her to the hospital?

Maybe: If she is taking feedings well enough to wet every 4-6 hours you may be able to monitor this at home. The temp is not that alarming and puking up a bit of her excess secretions is common with this illness.If her feedings drop off or she refuses them, the respiratory issues may need evaluation. ...Read more

No cough medication: But keep his nasal passages clear with a cool moist environment . Help him clear his secretions by patting him on the back. Feeding him small amounts frequently may help his vomiting. Have his chest checked to see if anything else will help. All the best and make sure his immunizations are current. ...Read more

My 5 year old sister is puking almost every night after coughing. Dr has no idea why.Breathing treatment and asthma meds haven't worked. Please help.

My 5 year old sister is puking almost every night after coughing. Dr has no idea why.Breathing treatment and asthma meds haven't worked. Please help.

Cough & Vomiting: Post-tussive vomiting is certainly a possibility. This can be caused by severe coughing. I would be concerned with the most common causes first, such as: asthma, post-nasal drip, gastroesophageal reflux (and you don't have to have heartburn to have this), and pertussis (whooping cough). She may benefit from seeing a pedicatric pulmonologist or an allergist. ...Read more
