  • how high is the temp? unless it's over 101 the doc is going to tell you to ride it out more than likely until they can see her..rotate tylenol and motrin, and as far as throwing up, do pedialite by teaspoons 1-2 every 2 hours, and then if she keeps that down do 3-4 every 2 hours..anything to keep down is good, i did sprite with my dd's last virus, it was the only thing she kept down...threw up every little bit of pedialite..but the 1-2 teaspoons "tricks" the tummy into thinking that there's nothing on the belly to throw up and at the same time she's staying hydrated..make sure she's at least got a wet diaper..good luck.

    **btw, the info that i gave is what i was told with dd's last virus from the doc's answering service. again, good luck

  • My son got a 12 hour throw up bug about 3 months ago, he literally threw up for 12 hours straight. I called the nurse helpline and didn't have to take him to the DR. Just kept him hydrated, he was very weak and could barely walk.. I was scared. he couldnt even hold down water. His fever got to 103 but tylenol kept it down. mom to kenzie's advice is exactly what I did.

  • keep her hydrated and as comfortable as possible. cold compresses on the forehead feel good when i get a stomach thing!
