Hello,

He may have developed drug induced gastritis and food intolerance. Please try bland diet, more liquids (warmed) and frequent gargling with warm salt water.

He may be given antacid syrup every 3-4 hours during waking period. Hid weight may be the cause of high blood pressure symptom, which needs confirmation and a cardiac evaluation by specialist pediatric cardiologist.
