Hello, sorry about this condition. If the vomit is green or yellow coloured, you need to take him to a surgeon because of possibility of an obstruction in gut causing this. Meanwhile please maintain his hydration by giving small frequent sips (2 oz or so) of sugar water with dash of salt.

You can try benadryl or domperidone/ondansetron like drug if vomiting is plain watery type.

Good luck to him.

It's watery but he continues to complain of stomach pain. He sleeps and awakes just to vomit. All my kids have the vomiting however he is the only one that will not stop. He also has diarrhea. Will Benadryl stop the stomach pain?

Benadryl may not stop cramp, for which you need to give antacid syrup like maalox and di-cyclomine drops or syrup. Another one is merbentyl.
