Food borne, Staph?: The timing suggests a food-related reaction. Quick onset with vomiting suggests a food contaminated with staph or other toxin-producing germ. Probably not from the meat or fish (even raw), but maybe sushi rice, salad, or other. See your doctor today, and phone your local health department to report possible food-borne illness. Usually not dangerous, though; should improve within a day or two. ...Read more

How often is too often for severe migraines that cause cold sweats from pain and vomiting?

There are many options out there and I'm sure your doctor can help you navigate what will work best for you. ...Read more

Is it normal for a 6 year old to sweat and cough, after being sick? My 6 year old was sick with bronchitis, bad fever cough, now that she is doing better, no fever, still coughing, and having cold sweats at night, is that normal should I worry?

Is it normal for a 6 year old to sweat and cough, after being sick? My 6 year old was sick with bronchitis, bad fever cough, now that she is doing better, no fever, still coughing, and having cold sweats at night, is that normal should I worry?

Usually: Usually after a bout of pneumonia or bronchitis, the cough is the last symptom to disappear - occasionally taking weeks to resolve. As long as her cough is continuing to improve, then it most likely is ok. If her cough is worsening or if she is having any difficulty breathing, then you will want to contact her doctor right away. The cold sweats may or may not be concerning - is she still having fever at night and the sweats are when it breaks? If you are noticing a pattern to when she has these, you may want to take her temperature prior to the sweat to make sure she's still not having fever - that would be a reason to see her doctor right away. As long as her fever is gone and her cough is improving, i'd say you were on the right track. If you have any specific questions about her symptoms or treatment, give her doc a call. Good luck! ...Read more
