What can cause of persistent vomiting?

Most frequently, persistent vomiting is often by gastroenteritis caused by a virus or potentially food-borne pathogens (salmonella, campylobacter, shigella, E. coli). The vomiting from these infections in general would be short-lived and self-limiting. nIf vomiting were to start after the introduction of a new medication, one needs to consider if the medication might be the culprit.nBut most importantly, if the vomiting persists it is critical to seek medical care to prevent the child from becoming severely dehydrated.
