Health Conditions That May Cause Toddler Vomiting

Author : Ben Carper

Toddler vomiting is a condition wherein a child, which ages from one up to three years old, naturally and uncontrollably expels food that have been taken in to the body forcefully. The food may pass through the mouth, as well as, the nose.

Although the act of fluid replacement is not an easy task for parents, they should never give up nor should they become very lax in attending to their children. Moreover, parents should never self-medicate their children during episodes of vomiting. A simple oral rehydrating solution may temporarily help in the prevention of dehydration. However, if vomiting persists, it is very important to visit your nearest pediatrician.

If this problem continues, coupled with diarrhea and abdominal pain, this may require further medical investigation and medical treatment because all of these may mean that there is a problem within the digestive system of your child. This may be due to the presence of infection and if left unattended, may lead to more serious health problems.

If your child has a cough, your child may also begin to vomit. If this happens, avoid over-feeding your child and continue to give the medications that have been prescribed to you by your doctor in order to suppress your childs cough. It is also very important to watch out for any signs of respiratory distress.

Poisoning may be another cause of this ailment. Therefore, it is very important to take note of the characteristic of the vomitus of your child. However, if such is not the case, prevention is still better than cure. Store all harmful substances inside your drawers and never forget to keep them always locked.

Most importantly, vomiting in children may be due to an increased intra cranial pressure. This may happen days or even several weeks after a head injury. On the other hand, this may also be due to conditions such as hydrocephalus or presence of lesions and tumor inside the brain.
