Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Sorry to hear about your son

Actually it is quite normal for children to vomit when they have a cough or flu

You need to give him steam inhalation,warm drinks like green tea and honey

Also give him Paracetamol and an anti-histamine like Loratdine

That will help in settling the problem

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Regards

I do that already, what worries me is that last time it happened it lasted since november until end of march
Expert:  DR. EHTISHAM replied 4 months ago.

In that case he will require a broncho dilator and may be an antibiotic as well

A cough preparation like Dextromethorfan or Guafenesin can help too

Please do let me know if you have any other question
