Sick 2y old

Hello Doc!
Hoping you will answer soon!?
My 2 and a half year old, had a fever on Wednesday morning, and was complaining of a sore tummy. She also through up.
She has just finished 4 days of Prelone, as she had a virus infection.
This morning she started throughing up again?!
And she is not well?!

She is going to the farm on Tuesday, but I cannot send her if she is not well?!

Any ideas??

Thank you so much!!
Really appreciate it!

You certainly cannot send your daughter to a farm if she is not well and is still vomiting.There are many possible causes for symptoms like this.The most common is tonsillitis with at the same time a condition called mesenteric adenitis. Here the glands in the tummy swell up in response to the tonsil infection. Another common cause is a urinary system infection. Your daughter must be seen by a doctor. If she is still ill she should be seen at an after hours paediatric unit.
