Our 19 month old baby, Isla, has been throwing up for three

Customer Question

Our 19 month old baby, Isla, has been throwing up for three hours, since 6:30pm, heaving everything in her system. At 9:30pm, she is still throwing up yellow foamy throw-up after only several sips of water. Her mood is good and her temperature is 98.1, yet every 15 minutes, she coughs up more yellow foam. We'll sleep holding on to her, slightly elevated - our question is: should we be worried about dehydration or consider visiting the emergency room? Thanks for your thinking - Ann
JA: How long have you been dealing with the cough? Are you having any other symptoms?
Customer: We have had a cough and runny nose for two weeks, but in great spirits with slightly elevated temps in the evening but normal
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Isla drank raw cow's milk - first time - on Sunday. She had no response to that but might that be part of the problem? Generally, Isla is an energized, healthy amazing little girl with no history of any medical conditions.

Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description,you should try OTC Emetrol 2.5 ml for vomiting and nausea.

Also maintain a good hydration with Pedialyte.

Give her small offerings of clear liquids at regular intervals.

Give her OTC Tylenol.

Possible differential diagnosis may include Gastroenteritis,Gastroesophageal acid reflux.

If she is unable to keep liquids down with persistent vomiting then see a doctor at ER.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
