Vomiting, or emesis, is the forceful expulsion of stomach contents through the mouth. Common symptoms associated with vomiting include nausea, abdominal discomfort, and retching. It can be caused by various factors such as infections, motion sickness, food poisoning, or underlying medical conditions such as a blockage.

Treatment for vomiting aims to address the underlying cause and manage symptoms. 

Here are some general guidelines:

  • Hydration: 

Drink small sips of clear fluids such as water, diluted fruit juices, or electrolyte solutions to prevent dehydration.

  • Rest: 

Take adequate rest in a comfortable position, preferably with your head elevated.

  • Avoid solid foods: 

Refrain from eating solid foods until vomiting subsides to prevent further irritation to the stomach.

  • Medications: 

Over-the-counter antiemetic medications may be recommended to alleviate nausea and vomiting. Always consult a healthcare professional if vomiting persists.

  • Dietary adjustments: 

Gradually reintroduce bland and easy-to-digest foods such as crackers, toast, rice, and bananas once vomiting stops.

  • Seek medical attention: 

If vomiting persists for more than 24 hours, is accompanied by severe abdominal pain, fever, or blood in vomit, consult a healthcare provider promptly for further evaluation and treatment.

For persistent or severe vomiting, medical assessment is essential to determine the underlying cause and appropriate treatment.
