We are on holidays in London and about to take a cruise vacation

Resolved Question:

We are on holidays in London and about to take a cruise vacation tomorrow. My eight year old daughter woke up today vomiting bright mustard yellow color. I tried to give her some coke with ice and lime but she could not hold it down. She took another two sips of coke after vomiting for the second time and now she is sleeping. Should I take her to the doctor before we sail?

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Customer:

Thank you. She just woke up and vomited again. Should I take her to the hospital? She is vomiting bile.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that you should definitely take her to the hospital.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

She does require treatment.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The most important thing is to prevent dehydration in children.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am pretty sure that the vomiting will settle in sometime but she should be seen in the meantime so that dehydration can be prevented.
