Thank you for your question.If he is continuously vomiting the best thing would be to take him to emergency.Try to give him as much fluid as you can in the form of electrolyte rich solutions i.e. gatorade or pedialyte.Giving him dramamine which is OTC can help with the vomiting and retching as well.His symptoms should improve in the next twelve to twenty four hours.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
