Vomiting in a child with no fever?

Okay last few days my son has been saying he hasnt felt well..but he always says that...today he was MISSERABLE when I picked him...but was playing just fine...we went to the church so I could cook dinner for the youth (do every wednesday) My dad picked him up (still normal) got him some subway (not THAT normal he just got picked up before dinner was ready)

My ds vomited soon after eating the subway (under 30 minutes) Now he is sleeping just fine and has no fever...he will be staying home tommrow..but I am thinking that is too early for food poisening (damn spelling) but with no fever could it be this nasty flu bug going around??

Judge me all you want for be stupid about not knowing...but just curious!

Not stupid at all, what kind of sub? could he have possiably overloaded his system? Do you happen to have a food log or anything like that it could be he ate something that his system right now just doesnt like for whatever reason, I wouldnt be quick to jump the flu bug yet, usually there is chills, fever, etc......

hmm, I know he is young but could he have gotten a little dehydrated? it can happen and wont have a fever but vomit, or it could have just been a stomach bug those can last anywhere from 24-72 hours and no fever

I think something upset his stomach. That doesn't necessarily come with fever. It is hard to tell if he got it from food or if he caught something in school. Just keep an eye on him, he might end up with some diarrhea as well. Some Gatorade might help with electrolytes. I hope he feels better soon!

It's possible it was food poisoning, but it's also not uncommon for a child not to run a fever with a stomach virus. It really doesn't matter too much what's causing it. Just watch for signs of dehydration (which shouldn't be a problem if it was a one time thing).

Thanks everyone...this is odd for him he isnt a puker! Last time he vomited was when he got motion sickness on the skytrain. I was covered in chunky pink vomit...havent been able to look at fruittropia since!

With food poisoning you don't stop throwing up and need to go to the ER. If he is doing fine now it is not food poisoning. He probably had too much.
