Customer Question
My 3 and 1/2...

My 3 and 1/2 year old son has been complaining of abdominal pain, he curls up in a ball when it happens and then vomits shortly after. I give him water but he just vomits it back up. He has vomited 5 Times in the last 4 hours. No fever or rash that I’ve seen yet. He fell asleep but woke up once crying from pain and then vomited. I’m afraid he’s going to get dehydrated, since he can’t hold anything down. What should I do? What do you think this is?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It’s not me, it’s my son. It just started about 5 hours ago

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No he’s pretty healthy otherwise

You may try Dramamine. The dose is:

2-6 years old: 12.5-25 mg PO q6-8hr; no more than 75 mg/day.

This can be;

Stomach bug which is usually viral, thus self limiting.

Gastritis is another possibility.

Try to give water or pedialyte, sips only at a time, so he can retain it.

If the pain or vomiting persists, he would need an exam at urgent care or emergency room.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
