Vomiting or Nausea in Children
You have said that your child has nausea and/or vomiting but does not have a headache.
Vomiting can lead to dehydration, especially in younger or smaller children. This can happen if your child doesn't (or can't) drink enough to replace the fluids that are lost when he vomits.
Here are the signs of dehydration:
Your child hasn't urinated in six to eight hours.
He is unusually sleepy.
He is less active than usual.
His heart seems to be beating fast.
His eyes look sunken.
His mouth is dry.
His skin is pale.
There are no tears when he cries.
He is losing weight.
Do you think your child may be dehydrated?
