When your child is vomiting, no one involved is happy. They’re miserable, you’re concerned and you’re probably worried about what to do and how to keep it from spreading to other family members, especially if you have other small children. The good news is while it’s exhausting for both you and your little one, illnesses that cause vomiting are typically short-lived and will go away on their own. That doesn’t mean you can let your guard down, though.

When you have children, it can seem as though it’s one malady after another. As if skinned knees and sore throats aren’t enough, rashes can pop up without warning.
The good news is that while rashes are common in children, they usually aren’t serious. Remain calm and keep your first-aid kit stocked with over-the-counter pediatric antihistamine medication, topical corticosteroid ointment, ibuprofen or acetaminophen and mild soap.
