Vomiting or Nausea in Children

So far your answers indicate that your child has abdominal pain and is vomiting or nauseated, but he does not have high fever, severe pain, pain in the lower right side, blood in the stool, or swelling of the belly, groin or scrotum. These are some of the symptoms that might indicate a serious problem in the abdomen. Click on the links to learn about conditions with these symptoms: appendicitis, bowel obstruction, and testicular torsion.

Sometimes abdominal pain is a sign of a problem with the kidneys or bladder (urinary tract).

Do any of these statements describe your child?

  • He says it hurts when he urinates.

  • He has to urinate all the time

  • He has wet the bed recently, which is very unusual for him.

  • His urine smells strong, funny, or bad.

  • His urine looks pink or red.

  • He has pain right below his belly button or in his lower back.

Yes, my child has at least one of these symptoms.

No, that doesn't describe my child's condition.
