My daughter is 3 years old and had a cold/cough virus about

Customer Question

my daughter is 3 years old and had a cold/cough virus about just over a week ago, then a few days into this she started getting diarrhea last week around wednesday time, and then started vomiting at night anytime between 9pm-3am, but was waking up with discomfort and tummy pain/ nausea. Her diarhea has since stopped and she is fine during the day maybe off her food slightly. She is still vomiting every night and discomfort starts up around 2 hours after going to bed, we prop her up every night as she has suffered from reflux in the past but this vomiting has been going on over a week nearly every single night and its disrupting her sleep, please advise?

This is Dr. Davidshe might be eating something at dinner which is upsetting her stomach or that she is allergic to which is causing her vomiting at night time.some people can be allergic to lactose to gluten or strawberries or pinapples or peanuts or certain oils or preservatives which can cause nausea and vomiting.she might need some testing to check for food allergies.she should be keeping a food diary of what she is eating and see what foods are causing worse symptoms.she needs to see her pediatrician and get evaluation of her symptoms and be sent to a pediatric GI doctor and allergy doctor as welldoes she have a pediatrician doctor you can bring her to?
