Vomiting happens when a person’s body forcefully expels the stomach’s contents through the mouth and sometimes along with the nose as well. This is done to protect the body from harmful pathogens and toxins. Vomiting is usually a symptom of an underlying condition or an infection.
If a person continues to vomit, it can lead to severe complications such as dehydration. If you or your child have been vomiting and are experiencing other symptoms of a stomach infection, call Medvisit to get a consultation for treatment over the phone.

The following are some of the most common reasons for experiencing vomiting that call for medical help.

How Can Medvisit Help With Vomiting?
If you experience vomiting, the best way to treat it is by increasing your fluid intake and taking plenty of rest. Wait for a minimum of 6 hours before eating solid food and make sure it is easy to digest, such as toasts, yogurt, and tea. You can take over the counter anti vomit medications if the reason behind it is motion sickness.
However, vomiting is a symptom of many medical conditions. Therefore, it is imperative to seek medical assistance as soon as possible, especially in the case of persistent and unexplained vomiting. You can call Medvisit and book yourself a consultation over the phone. Our highly trained English speaking doctor or a native doctor will take your medical history in detail and prescribe you medicines based on your symptoms.
If our doctor feels that you should get blood tests done, he/she can book them at the nearest medical facility and arrange for emergency medical care. If you need a doctor to visit you in person, we can send one of our highly trained doctors to your house.
