Customer: replied 1 year ago.
stool and urine normal
no pain in his abdomen
he seems to cough after his activity usually and then throw up
Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the input.
After a bout of cough there can be vomiting.
There can be irritation of throat.
As his stool, urine are normal & there is no abdominal pain, it is unlikely to be serious.
He can be recovering from viral infection.
To reduce irritation of stomach, zantac can be given.
He can do warm salt water gargling too.
If he develops any other symptom, I would advise to get him an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
