Hi doctor,

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Giving ORS (oral rehydration solution) is good. It will treat dehydration and try to make them in the right concentration. Try to have one sachet in one-liter water. You can give her syrup Zincolife 5 ml (Elemental zinc) once a day for 14 days, and syrup Ondem 2.5 ml (Ondansetron) can be given for vomiting. But if there is persistent vomiting and if the child is dizzy, lethargic, with, decreased urination, then you can consult a pediatrician soon.
