Is It Normal For My Baby To Throw Up After Coughing
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
Yes: Always is a very powerful word....So if your baby always throws up after coughing, i would want him seen. Food is meant to go down the digestive tract, not up (except when one has a stomach bug). (s)he could just have reflux or perhaps a mild respiratory condition. When parents use "always" and "never" and mean it, i generally want to evaluate that child. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

2/22/15 fever.26th normal. Afternoon 27th fever w/cough till now it hasnt gone away ive tried everything,but I feel mucus and I throw up last meal?
Fever comes and goes: I suspect that you have a viral bronchitis. I would try plenty of fluids to stay hydrated, mucinex (guaifenesin) or Guafenesin 400 or 600 mg either 6 or 4 times a day (2400 mg a day) and acetaminophen or ibuprofen for the fever. The sensation of wanting to vomit is from swallowing mucus which irritates the stomach ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
4 yr son dble ear infects.Horrible cough for days.almost throws up from.Dr said also take zyrtec (cetirizine).Will that help horrible cough when child bad cold?
Is my son lactose intolerant? I'm asking because after my son drinks mill, within minutes he throws up. No temp, no cough! acts normal until he drinks milk. He also refuses to eat cheese. However, he eats things that have milk in them. He is 19 months.
Lactose : Lactose intolerance typically causes cramping, bloating, diarrhea, and gas. Immediate vomiting after milk leads me to think he might have a milk allergy. Most kids with milk allergies outgrow them, but some can become worse over time and kids with one food allergy might be predisposed to others. Knowing his risks can help introducing new foods. Talk with his doctor about this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dear doctor, my baby 10 wk always flexes his body after feed and throws up as he does this. Why do babies flex so much? Is it normal or something?
Reflex: Coughing increases your intra abdominal pressure, decreases the pressure in the chest when you breath in. Sometimes this induces reflux acid to come up into the esophagus. You may induce a gag reflex like this or from thick mucus. That types of spasms can be a part of a particular illness called pertussis that you could get checked for. ...Read more
See doctor...: Your symptoms are likely due to bronchospasm and airway inflammation. You will likely need a beta- agonist inhaler and a steroid inhaler. Shortness of breath can be a life-threatening symptom so you need to see a doctor asap so your symptoms can be evaluated and treatment rendered. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I just swallowed a hair rubber band and i'm really scared. I also unsuccessfully tried to cough and throw it up. Am i going to be okay?
You will be fine: Take a deep breath and relax. If all you swallowed was a rubber band then your body will just pass it right through. Just think of it as a big piece of calamari. ...Read more
My father has had a chronic cough for over four years. What could be the cause? He often times throws up after a coughing episode.
Smoker?: There are a number of common things that cause a chronic cough. Post nasal drip from allergies is one, asthma is another, reflux disease, and emphysema or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Throwing up after a coughing episode is called post-tussive emesis. That is pretty normal. ...Read more
Every night for the past 2 weeks at 2 or 3 my 12 mo old throws up from dry cough! how and whys this happening? What can I do to help her?
May be a few things: This could be from inflamed airways in the chest, either due to a viral infection (called bronchiolitis) or early-onset asthma. If she has eczema or if there are allergies or asthma in the family, i'd consider this. It is possible, but less likely, that this is backwash of stomach acid ("reflux"). Finally, it could actually be whooping cough ("pertussus") or a related infection. See her doc. ...Read more
