My 17 month old daughter has been vomiting for two days, she hasn't eaten anything in these two days. I've been able to keep her hydrated by giving her 25ml of fluid (hydralite) every 10 minutes. I took her to the emergency deparment yesterday, they sent us home saying she has viral gastroenteritis & for me to give her food & fluids & just let her throw up. I don't feel happy about that.
When should the viral gastroenteritis clear up?
When can I start giving her food?
Is is okay if she hasn't eaten in this time, but is rehydrated?
