If your toddler is having trouble breathing or shows signs of severe dehydration, seek medical attention immediately. Severe dehydration symptoms include sunken eyes, splotchy hands and feet, cold, sleepiness, fussiness, dizziness, and delirium.
Head for a hospital if:
• The vomiting is accompanied by severe abdominal pain or a tender swollen abdomen.
• The vomit contains green bile or blood. Blood in the vomit looks like coffee grounds.
• The vomiting occurs after a head injury.
• Your child has a stiff neck, which could indicate meningitis.
Call the doctor if:
• The vomiting lasts for more than 24 hours.
• Your child is showing signs of dehydration; crying with no tears, dry mouth and lips, lethargy, and dark urine.
• There are small spots of blood in the vomit. A small amount of blood can be normal and caused from a blood vessel bursting during vomiting, but you’ll want to make sure.
• Your child has pain in the right side of the abdomen and is fatigued or jaundiced (skin is yellow).
