Diagnosing Vomiting and Diarrhea Symptoms
No one likes to be sick—that’s a fact. However, all across the world, every day there are people who are sick. Sickness can range from the common cold, and a simple cough or a bit of a chill, to more extreme symptoms, such as vomiting and diarrhea. There are many reasons that you could have vomiting and diarrhea symptoms, and none of them are too light. Read on to find out just what may be causing your sickness and what you can do about it.
Sickness in children and sickness in pregnancy
Believe it or not, it is very common to experience vomiting during pregnancy. Baby vomiting or infant vomiting is also just as common. Pregnant women tend to experience vomiting due to the vast amount of changes occurring within their body during their pregnancy, and due to the child itself. Think about it this way; you have a full child in your body. Things get pretty cramped inside. Your stomach is being compressed, and this can cause you to puke. And for infants and toddlers, puking and cases of diarrhea are generally considered normal. Not being used to foods quite yet, a lot of infants can simply become sick, just as dog/cat vomiting is an occurrence that is common when the animal is introduced to foreign foods. And while animals and humans are very different, some things transcend species.
How to stop diarrhea and vomiting
If there is no blood in the vomit or diarrhea, and if you notice no fever or other symptoms, you can safely perform basic diarrhea treatment. Diarrhea remedies are simple. First off, ensure that your toddler is sufficiently hydrated. Diarrhea and vomiting can cause dehydration, and should be monitored. If your child can chew, a good toddler diarrhea treatment is bread, broken in to small bits, or crackers. This can work well for vomiting as well. If diarrhea persists, it is important that you contact a doctor in order to ensure that there is no underlying issue causing your baby to have diarrhea or constantly vomit.
