Vomiting in 5 year old

Hi Doc,

My daughter complained of a sore tummy about 19:00 last night. By 20:00 she was vomiting and then again at 21:00. There is no runny tummy but she is still complaining of a sore tummy. i''m so worried pls advise what could be wrong. she is not a sickly child just has a blocked nose in the mornings and night. it really effected me yesterday seeing her so sick. she doesnt have fever. She also will not drink buscopan or anything like that. thank you.

With children there is always a reason for vomiting like this. It is possible that your daughter has a urinary sytenm infection or even appendicitis. She must be seen and examined by a doctor, especially if she vomited today as well and still has tummy pain.
