My daughter is about to be a year old and she is vomiting and having diahrea as well as coughing and congestion what should I do for her?
What to do after onset of food poioning? The vomitting has stopped, the diahrea continues. Vomitting started with in 6 hours and the episode started about 20 hours ago. What should I eat, drink, not eat or not drink; medicine? How about asprin?
You: You may wish to start with clear liquids like broth, clear juices (not acidic) for the first 12 hours. If you start vomiting again with liquids or you are not keeping up with the fluid loss through your bowel, you may need to go to the emergency room for intravenous hydration. Do not recommend that you take Aspirin as if can be tough on the GI tract. If you are working hard to keep up with hydration but find yourself feeling dizzy, especially when getting up from lying down or sitting, feel faint, find that your resting pulse rate is acclerated well above a hundred; you may need to be seen. I would avoid dairy, meats and vegetables intially. Might wish to start bland - like toast or rice. ...Read more

May have salmonella poisoning, what should I do? On last wednesday my husband ate chicken that he realized was not cooked all the way through after he had already eaten more than one piece. He woke up early thursday morning with diahrea, vomitting and ab
Salmonella: Salmonella food poisoning can occur in chicken, as can other types of food poisoning, most commonly staph food poisoning. The best thing to do is to use anti-emetics (medications to stop vomiting) if it hasn't stopped in 24 hours, but not to take anti-diarrheals in order to let the toxins get out of the body. In general, antibiotics should be avoided. Almost all types of food poisonings will run its course. If a patient can't stop vomiting in 24 hours, can't take fluids in 24-36 hours, or has severe abdominal pain or high fevers then they should seek out a medical evaluation. ...Read more

My 15 month old son has had vomiting and diahrea on/off for 2.5 wks. We have seen the doctor twice who says this is a virus. Any advice to stop it?
Stomach flu is an annoying event at any age but when I hear of this pattern lasting more than 10 days I have to think of other issues - this may be diet related or symptoms of another disease process. How's the weight? Anyone else sick in the house? I'm not big into lab work for typical v/d illnesses but your child may need some further work up.

If you feel that you're getting dehydrated, or if your fever persists more than 24 to 36 hours, then you should see your doctor. ...Read more
