My 6 year old is throwing up around every 20 min. no fever

This answer was rated:

My 6 year old is throwing up around every 20 min. no fever and I don't think it is anything she ate. Anything I should watch for and when should I contact her doctor? This started at 7 pm my time and it is now 1230am



Is she able to retain water?

Since how long are her symptoms?

Has she diarrhea, pain abdomen, bloating, nausea/dry retching?

She is not keeping anything down. I have been allowing 1 sip of gatorade between. No diarrhea. no abdomen pain. She has bee dry retching the last 6 times. started at 7pm my time now it is 12:35. her last dry heave was at 1215



You can try dimenhydrinate children's liquid. This can be just stomach irritation. Signs of dehydration like excess thirst, fast pulse / heart rate, dry tongue would warrant an examination at ER. Projectile (shooting) vomiting, fever, persistence of the vomiting and inability to keep even water / Gatorade also will point for an examination by a doctor.
