Customer Question

Our four year old son has vomited three times and has no fever. He ate a lot of chocolate today and we wonder if it is dietary or an illness.

Hello, Sorry about this stomach upset. Sure it is due to indigestion. Please give him sips or 2-3 oz of sugary water with dash of salt, repeatedly to prevent dehydration. Avoid solid dishes for a day or so. Watch for urine frequency.

If not cured or has other symp***** *****ke diarrhea or fever, please consult your pediatrician.

If vomit is smelling sour, please give some antacid syrup like Maalox 5-10 mililitre every hour or so till cured.
