URGENT: 14mth wont stop vomiting -3days

I need your help.

My 14mnth wont stop vomitting - it's been three full days now. She cant stomach anything besides bread and water, which she drinks about three bottles. Everything els - especially her formula - comes out. She has no energy, always crying, pale skin complection.

I took her to the house doc - he prescribed an antibiotic (to kill any stomach bugs) and Val Suppository for the vomitting. Gave her the suppository Monday but still vomitted. Then phoned him and he told me to give her another, not even four hours after the first. Monday night - I swear she was hallucinating - she kept crying and grabbing at objects in the air (nothing was there).

At first I thought it was teething - she only has two teeth at the moment. She keeps grabbing for her mouth and her ears.

PLEASE HELP - I need a second opition - think the house doc mis-read her symptoms. There are no paediatricians where I live...

The panic is over - she's doing much better today. Apparently it had something to do with her 'Flora' (if that means anything).

Thanks anyway
