I think that since he is vomiting so much he must be seen in the emergency again.He WOULD most likely require intravenous fluids as there is very high risk of dehydration in his case.I would STRONGLY recommend that you take him to the emergency again and if he is dehydrated or lethargic you should insist on intravenous fluid therapy and to also give him something to help with his vomiting.
