My baby boy who's one year nine months is being vomiting for the past hour. We suspect teething, but we have never seen it this way. Need urgent help
Your 21 month old child is vomiting. This can be due to various reasons, such as a "gastroenteritis" (a stomach virus), gastro esophageal reflux (spitting up), or other more serious causes. I would not attribute vomiting to teething. I would like you to see your Pediatrician to determine the cause.

Near constant: Intractable means non-stop or not responding to medication. Usually when people vomit it is because the stomach wants to get rid of what ever is inside at the moment. Usually then when it is empty the vomiting stops. Sometimes because of severe illness, pregnancy or psychological problems, people can stop vomiting even when their stomach is empty. This usually requires a trip to the doctor. ...Read more
