Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 4 months ago

Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
It can be a viral infection.
Viral infection will need supportive measures.
If he can tolerate fluid orally, then it could be treated at home.
Otherwise he will be dehydrated as you suspected.
Try pedialyte in sips.
You will not get OTC medicine for small baby to stop vomiting.
If the urine is less, I would advise to take an examination by doctor without delay.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Your satisfaction is my goal.
If you are happy with my answer please click on 5 star rating so that I can get the credit for helping you.
Wish him healthy life.

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.
