Sore throat and vomiting in children

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and vomiting in children


Avatar m tn Make sure she has a breakfast in the morning and also a good sleep pattern. If you have a pet animal in the home, make sure she washes her hands after touching it and do not allow your child to be licked by a pet dog if you have one. I would also check her out for parasitic worms to rule that out. I would also get some children's multi vitamins, the nice chewy ones, to give her one a day. When she throws up, look at the vomit to see what it is she is bringing up.
Avatar f tn He is almost 17 and has had issues with morning nausea and vomiting for several years. It comes and goes and lasts 3-5 days. It will wake him up in the morning for several days and he will either vomit (most often only once) or feel nauseous for an hour or so and then is perfectly fine the rest of the day. When it ends he is fine for several weeks before it starts again. He is otherwise very healthy and active although quite thin, even on the edge of being underweight.
1499017 tn?1297466029 Honey and lemon are definitely helpful! When I was sick I couldn't keep anything in my body. I ended up going to the ER for iv fluids. I told them my concerns about not being able to get any nutrients into my body and they reassured me that our bodies store enough and that baby will get what they need. The main concern is dehydration. Everyone has been sick lately. Being pregnant while sick definitely makes it worse!
Avatar n tn I am assuming that, by "positive" strep cultures, you're referring to cultures reported as having Group A beta strep (some labs report it by the genus/species Streptococcus pyogenes). Some labs report "beta strep not group A" on their strep screens. There are other beta streptococci, especially group C, that can cause a nasty throat, but do not produce the sequelae of rheumatic fever/glomerulonephritis. Pets can carry strep. Try culturing your dog if you have one.
Avatar n tn I also have soreness on the back of my tongue, and now a sore throat to accompany it. Depending on how I move my tongue, it sort of hurtsm like there may be a sore of some kind. Is it possible that I am biting it in my sleep?
Avatar f tn Hi, I was reading this thread and hope you will excuse me for jumping in. have any of you been tested for parasites? I know these little buggers cause all kinds of havoc to our body. Might not be it, but something to check into.
Avatar n tn The doctors only response is repeat the test in a month. But she is still ill, vomiting, nauseated, and losing weight. In a month she will be under 100 pounds, plus she wants to be back in college and enjoying life like a 20-year-old should be doing. I think they are missing something her. Could it be an unusual syndrome or disease, and if so what? Any ideas?
Avatar f tn The skin can have it, the vagina , the throat, and stool, the nose can carry it,. But NOT the eye, and not in large numbers anywhere only a colony or two. you can carry it asymptomatically in the nose or you can get sinusitis. It just depend on how toxigenic the strain is and how you immunity is etc. MRSA is the same bug it just has become resistant. You should have been a microbiologist. I used to have a T-shirt that said "microbiologists have culture" LOL.
Avatar n tn He gave a drug caled Zofran used for nausea and vomiting in cancer patients. Well it worked, she was jumping up and down on her hospital bed. Weds she was fina all day back to herself, thursday morning she was fine too. I put her to bed and bam she vomits again!! fine friday morning, vomits again fri night. saturday morning shes fine, playing all day. Put her to bed Saturday nignt and she vomits again!
Avatar n tn then in November I was put on bioxin and had a very bad reaction w/ throat constriction and lump in throat and feeling my food sitting in my throat..went to Gi she put me on previcid and then nexium felt good until late january had a bout of vomiting for 2 days vomiting food that I ate the day before..
Avatar m tn I went to the doctor back in October I believe because I felt like I had something stuck in my throat and I had a very minute ammount of blood in my saliva when I spit. Anyway, he told me I have a sinus infection and gave me antibiotics. Now I have always had allergies and plenty of sinus infections and I knew this was no sinus infection. So I take the antibiotics and nothing changes. So I go back to the same doctors office to see a different doctor.
Avatar m tn Removing your tonsils just removes a large pocket for food debris to collect in and decay, but that doesn't mean that the same process cannot occur somewhere else, as in my case in my throat.
Avatar m tn If you guys are this worried, WHY ARE YOU HAVING UNPROTECTED SEX?? It doesn't matter how frequently you see each other, it only takes 1 time for pregnancy to occur. Pulling out offers NO protection and Plan B is an EC and does have a failure rate. If she took it after 4 days as well, it didn't even do anything. Plan B has to be taken immediately after to have any chance of preventing pregnancy.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar n tn I just had another Virus on top of this and now I have a burning/tingling in my lower legs and my feet I cripple around like I have ran on sharp rocks barefoot, losing sleep and waking up with bile sore throat and will vomit bile every a.m. The GI and GYN did a exploratory Lapo for adhesions and I was clean, so now sending me to Endrocologist for the glands. I also have headaches and eye vision disrupts.
Avatar n tn Starting to have dry mouth and tingling at the back of my throat. 4. Slight vision problems 5. Slight tingling in my penis and anus. 6. Belching and the sensation feeling of a large mucus ball at the base of my throat/esophagus. 7. Slight sinus problem. 8. Ear pain and popping. 9. Dermatologist stated I have steatocystoma multiplex from the lumps I have developed on both forearms. 10. elevated blood pressure at times 136/84 I do not know what to think anymore.

Avatar n tn Until I do get answers, I have been writing letters to my seven children and husband (in the case of my death) and making memory books, and trying to prepare my husband on what to do if I should pass away.Been praying a lot. If and when I get any answers I will post them here. God bless you all! Thanks for sharing! At least I am not alone in this.
Avatar n tn Hi guys, Me and my partner have been ttc for 3 months now, but this month i feel really different in myself, and have really sore breasts, and cramping on and of, sometimes it can be quite bad, also headaches on and of to.
Avatar f tn They have all been spiking a high fever and throat and tummy upsets with diarrhea. I talked to my daughter in Tenn, her son started school last week and has come down with the same thing. I talked to my daughter her in Fl, her eldest who is 7, has missed all but 2 days since school started, he came down with the same thing! I am holed up at home and refuse to go into big crowds, cause I don't wanna get sick! It seems to be everywhere, whatever it is!
Avatar f tn She was given IV fluids and Toradol (which took nearly an hour to kick in.) She was vomiting in the ER as well. Finally, the pain stopped and they let us go home. They're not sure if she passed the stone yet. They couldn't find it on the ultrasound but also didn't find it when they checked her urine. They said it could still be stuck in the ureter. They gave me a prescription for Percocet 7.
162489 tn?1189759431 I got a bloody spot about the size of a silver dollar and for the last two days a dark brownish very light period about the size of a couple nickels, I have been depressed and crying, lost my appetite for several days, lately fixed on eating ice cream and lamb with cumin, headache and sore throat, one day I was a little vomiting, I can smell people smoking outside of my home and I have stayed in bed for three days and just would like to be alone. What do you think?
Avatar n tn My doctor says that its not serious however that fact that he is always so egar to remove them and have them tested concerns me somewhat. They are always very large and extremely painful resulting in me vomiting and being dizzy alot. Does anyone know is this a condition or can they be prevented. I am sick of being on anti biotics all the time!
Avatar f tn Hi Thanks for writing to the forum! Well, usually excessive sweating in children is not a cause of alarm in itself. However, in your nephew’s case, there are other accompanying symptoms too. Hence, it is important to get proper investigations done to rule out certain conditions. First is to test for diabetes. Hyperthyroidism is another cause. In kids with persistent cough and sweating or other upper respiratory infections coming on and off, a heart condition cannot be ruled out.
Avatar m tn Other thing I recommed there is use saline solution to rinse your nostril through throat frequently, I mean many times in a short time and reduce the infection in the back throat area. Eventually it will heal. I hope this will help and would like feedback from people who have tried.
Avatar f tn I also have a condition called Fibromyalgia and an intolerance to gluten and dairy and my son is on a GF/CF diet although I do not know if he is intolerance to these foods and I haven't seen a dramatic improvement in his behaviour on the diet, but there has been a reduction in his headaches and he also used to have a very sore bottom, like a bad case of nappy rash, which has now gone. How have you found out your son has a food allergy to wheat?
458090 tn?1256324762 like 6 or 7 months and today i woke up with a sore throat and i feel like ****, and someone asked if i was ok, my cheeks looked red!!! oh great!
Avatar n tn As all this was going on I was clearing my throat all the time of really thick flem and then one day my throat felt swollen, not even really sore ( LIKE MY HEAD ) but swollen. Sure enough it was sinus drainage and the glands in my throat were swollen. I wasn't getting over a cold, and my sinuses were never stuffy, they were always clear. A dr. put me on a nasal steroid spray and slowly the pressure in my head that i had for months started to ease up.
611964 tn?1223771320 html Tests for Lyme disease, like tests for other infectious diseases, are often confusing and circumstantial, and their analysis and interpretation has often been flawed. In infectious diseases you do a Western blot test to see if you have a specific reaction. Western blot separates out proteins antigens of an organism you are looking for. It tells you if a person has been exposed. It is not a direct measurement of the organism.
Avatar n tn It presents as pain in the right lower abdomen. Typically, the child would have had cold or sore throat in the preceding days up to two weeks. The neck glands would be enlarged. This is often confused with appendictis. The difference been that the child would still retain his or her appetite.
