  • It most likely isn't a reaction to the vomitting but a reaction to something she's ingested immediately prior. Was she eating/drinking anything before this happened? Sounds like she needs allergy testing.

  • Get her to an allergist for RAST testing.

  • What did she eat today and is she taking any meds??? Any antibiotics????

  • I would guess that she is throwing up because of the reaction and not that the reaction is because of the vomiting. I would start making a log of what she ate prior to the episodes and look for a similarity
