    Default Vomiting 3 yr old

    My 3 yr old boy just vomited everywhere. He had/has a temp I put him in a Luke warm/cool bath. I havnt given him panadol yet as I just wanna wait for his tummy to settle a bit, his lethargic, and I think is dizzy. Should I make a doc appt or take him to the hospital. I'll have to wait till DP gets home for both (his working but leaving early)

    I would wait and see how he goes by the time dp gets home. If he still has a temp and is lethargic i would try an emergency doctor.
    Poor little thing, hope he picks up soon!

    I wouldn't take him to hospital, it might just be a 24 hour type bug. I'd wait and see how he goes, make sure he keeps his fluids up, try some Hydralyte ice-blocks, keep him comfy etc

    Given that it's only just come on I'd wait too, if he's vomiting and feeling unwell he's going to be lethargic at this stage and maybe the heat from the bath was just too much (if I have a hot shower when I feel unwell I vomit too). If he doesn't improve by the time your DP gets home maybe call nurse on call and they can assess what to do next. Definitely keep up some hydralyte blocks or plain lemonade icypoles, keep comfy, etc.

    I wouldn't take him to a doctor at this stage, it's probably just a tummy bug. Skip the panadol and keep up the fluids and rest. Hopefully he will come right soon

    Just keep him comfy, try some hydralyte ice blocks or the drink. If you ask at the chemist they may have some already frozen you can buy. Otherwise make up some hydralyte and just give little sips. If it becomes apparent that he can't hold anything down then take him to the hospital.

    I just had a 24 hour tummy bug, I also had a fever, aching limbs and felt very weak. I would not panic yet. Lots of kids at school have also had the bug, for some they needed a few days off. Give some panadol and if the fever does not come down within 1 hour then call the nurse line or similar in your state. I'm not sure what's current, but when I had DD I was told cool baths are no longer recommended as they can cool down too much. Just to remove most of their blankets and clothes.

    Also, give a half dose of panadol. That way if he throws up again within 30 minutes you know you can give him another half dose without overdosing him.
