This isn't normal: Time to see your doctor, and find out the cause of your vomiting or feeling the need to vomit. Make sure to have a food diary, so you can go over what you've been eating that is not agreeing with your stomach. Hope you start feeling better! ...Read more

Fever and vomiting: If his symptoms just started. Put him in a tepid tub to help bring down the fever. Try not to give hem anything by mouth for an hour after vomiting, then start with small sips of Pedialyte frequently. If the vomiting stops today, avoid any milk products that contain fat as it is more likely to come back up. If he is doing well over the next 12 hrs, take it slowly on putting him back on reg diet. ...Read more
