It's never gone but there saying it's nothing but hes not eating hes making his self sick constantly been lie this before the start of lock down he really needs to have a scan really but they wont refer what to do

Please send pic of swelling if seen at skin. May be a midline hernia. May give benadryl and antacid syrup for feeling sick. Good luck.

May get dehydration so give lot of sips of fluid with sugar or glucose. Indoor treatment may be required for tests and injectable drug for vomiting.
