How long does vomiting last after stomach flu for 2 year old only does it at night?

1-2 weeks. With a stomach flu or gastroenteritis, the nervous impulses to the gut can be mixed up. Flow though the tract can be irregular causing cramping and sometimes delayed emptying of the stomach. Night-only vomiting is usually related to poor flow and overfilling of the stomach. This limited vomiting does not usually lead to dehydration. Call dr if the vomiting worsens, is pine green or worsens. Read more...

My voice is hoarse and it is very painful to swallow anything after throwing up yesterday from stomach flu. What caused it how long would it last?

Stomach acid. Vomiting causes the contents of the stomach to be regurgitated back up the esophagus, into the throat and mouth. The stomach contains a fair amount of acid in order to help digest food. When you vomit, this acid comes up as well, and vomiting repeatedly can irritate the esophagus and throat, which is likely what you are experiencing. Time will help but can try an anesthetic like chloraseptic too. Read more...

5yr old daughter constant pain at her belly button. Vomiting every 15 minutes last 7 hours. Stomach flu symptoms for 6 days. Should we take her in?

Yes. 6 days is a long time for the stomach flu with concern for dehydration. She is also vomiting often. Children localize pain poorly and they will point to their belly button for any pain. Persistent pain is serious. I would be worried that this is something other than the stomach flu, such as appendicitis. Have her checked in the ER. All the best. Read more...
Immediately! If she can't keep any fluids down, she will get dehydrated. Constant vomiting will throw off critical electrolytes. How is her alertness? Is she groggy? Exhausted? Running a fever? Floppy? Diarrhea? Passing gas? She needs an exam, possibly IV meds & fluids. Periumbilical pain, N/V & fever are early signs of appendicitis, but since it's been 6 days, that's lower on the list of possible dxs. Read more...

..Hello, I have a 3 year old daughter, once a year she gets a stomach flu and this year it has already happened, last night she vomited up a small amount of food and liquid and then clear liquid with bits in it a while later, she then went to bed and slep

Likely viral... Your daughter is lucky that a stomach virus is not something that she has to experience often; however, there is no "limit" that is set in stone... meaning "once per year". With exposure, there is potential to become symptomatic. Things like started school/daycare tend to increase the amount of illnesses one experiences due to increased exposure. Clear fluids, rest to treat. If persists - be seen. Read more...
