Dear customer, it is a pleasure to attend you today, I want to tell you that you have nothing to worry about, a single vomit for a week is not a sign of alarm or a warning of which you have to worry, also if you have not had general malaise, decline in general condition, fever or any sign or symptoms of decompensation due to dehydration you have nothing to worry about, It is likely that there is some type of food that does not agree with him or a reaction to some kind of substance or seasoning in the food that he does not like, a single episode of vomiting is not an indication to start treatment with antiemetics such as metoclopramide, in any case when there are recurrent episodes at least 5, 7 or 10 episodes of vomiting in one day the situation changes but in this case you have nothing to worry about, the recommendation is to maintain abundant hydration preferably with oral rehydration salts which come in sachets and are of multiple flavors you can dilute one sachet in a liter of drinking water and give him a glass of this solution every 8 hours, with these recommendations the situation should improve, however, I would like you to keep me updated on the condition of your daughter, I will be happy to assist you and guide you in everything I can, I will be attentive to any additional questions about it.
