One more thing and this works wonders. If you have a syringe give your child seven up or Gatorade and slowly release the liquid in her mouth to try and get fluids in her. You should do a syringe full every 10-15 min. I also make seven up Popsicles.

You can go to the pharmacy to get ibuprofen suppositories. Most places carry them for situations such as yours. Hope that helps.

I had the same problem when my daughter was younger, I swear by the Tylenol suppositories.

You can get the the tylenol for age 2-6 in chewable tablet form...that is what I use because my daughter does the exact same thing!!! It comes in a few flavours too...bubblegum, watermelon, grape, etc :)

i have heard that you can get tylenol suppositories. just don't keep giving her more medicine, some medicine does stay down, even though it doesn't look like it. i always try a lukewarm bath and keep an eye on the temp. there is an over the counter nausea medicine i found at walmart before. it was the generic brand. that works sometimes, but most of the time, i just let them sleep it off. i wait to give them liquids until they ask for them. then i start with warm temperature water, it seems to be easier on their stomach, and not too bad if it comes back up. hope this helps you, good luck! if her temp starts to spike, call your local emergency room, they will let you know if you need to bring her in. good luck!

I'm sure you have contacted NHS Direct by now but if not please do so. I cannot give medical advice but if she has a fever than cool her down with luke warm flannels applied to her skin. If she is being sick she may be in danger of dehydration. Hope you get her back to good health soon.
