I would use ginger and lemon in either a cool glass of water or warmed up (if no fresh ginger put some powdered in a coffee filter) and always always give ur kid water when sick. Myself as a kid got so dehydrated when I was a kid I ended up having seizures for a whole year. I'm also such a hippie I use thieves on her feet and fennel essential oil on her tummy diluted 1:20 drops with olive oil. I also diffuse it into the air. Broth is an old remedy to help calm the stomach and an easy way to get nutrients in that are not to hard to digest hope some of this helps and ur little one is back to their terrible 2s in no time lol

Okay thank you !!

Gatorade and pedialyte! Tylenol and/or motrin for any fevers. If it lasts more than 3 days of no eating and drinking and only vomiting, you might consider seeing a Healthcare provider.

Thank you ! Does ibuprofen work that's what I got right now ?

Yes ibprofine works too. Tylenol and motrin are best for fever reducer though. You alternate them every 4 hours. My son is 17 months and had hand foot mouth before he was 1.
