Pedialyte. Oral electrolyte fluids, like pedialyte, will replenish not only the liquids lost though vomiting, but also the electrolytes. The key to success is small amounts frequently-give 1-2 tsp every ten minutes for one hour, if no vomiting, increase to 3 tsp every ten minutes, advancing as tolerated.
Think straw. Great question. Drinking fluids does indeed help to reduce fever. Liquids that are cold are fun to drink. Drinking slowly thru a straw seem to allow the intake at a rate that lessens the chance for too much to be consumed and then we throw up. Remember it is not a high fever we are concerned about. Fever indicates an infection. Reducing fever makes us feel better and thus able to drink more.
Is it bad to be throwing up bile and running a high fever? The puke is a green color and not sure how high the fever is but she is really hot to touch and looks a little pale and can't get up unless she threws up everywhere can't eat or drink anything
Hello, . Hello, yes, these are worrisome symptoms. Don't know if the person is a child or an adult. With combination of green emesis, inability to eat or drink, possible high fever, and inability to get up - recommend that the person is treated at the emergency room. Take care.
