Hello doctor,

My girl baby is 3 years old and weighs 17 kg. She does not eat properly and will not have any alternative food also. She has vomiting, for three days and vomited once or twice. She has flatulence and cough for two days.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand the concern of a mother regarding a child who is not eating. Presently she is having a mild cough, which can be due to a mild sore throat or common cold and she might be vomiting due to this illness. The weight of the child is very good so do not worry. I suggest not to force or behind her to eat. Let her be comfortable with whatever she feels to eat or not to eat for a few days, meanwhile, take care of her cough. Start her on this medication and watch for her motions if she develops diarrhea, connect with me again.

Syrup Loratidine (Lorin 5 mg/ 5 ml) 3.5 ml once daily for three days.

I hope this helps.
