Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Based on your history, I can suggest please go to pediatrician urgently. May be need to do abdominal sonogram because green color vomiting is unsual in 4 years old children, sometimes there may be lying some intestine problem like obstruction. I am not making you scared but informing you regarding possible urgency.

You can give Calpol every six hourly. For vomiting, you can give syrup Ondansetron 5 ml three times a day for three days. Give ORS to prevent dehydration. I am not giving you full prescription because I want you to visit pediatrician and get herself checked first.


Investigations to be done:

Ultrasound abdominal.
