A vomit is throwing up your stomach contents outside
from your mouth. Vomit consists of half digested food
or liquid that is mixed with your digestive juice that
exits through your mouth. It could be anything that
you have eaten. Vomit may be of several colours depending
upon what coloured food you have eaten.
Well, everyone vomits sometime or the other in their
life. Vomiting can occur due to several reasons. But
the commonest cause is infection. Some germs may enter
your stomach along with the food that you eating. These
germs then cause your stomach to push the food up rather
than down and you land up vomiting. Sometimes, vomiting
can occur due to overeating or even eating the wrong
combination of food. Thus, anything that upsets the
stomach may cause vomiting.
Vomiting may not be related
to food all the time. Sometimes, we may get dizzy while
sitting in a roller coaster, riding a plane or travelling
in a ship and we may land up vomiting. This is known
as motion sickness.
Small babies tend to throw
up easily as they swallow lot of air while feeding.
Hence, burping the babies is very important to
relieve them of an upset stomach.
First & foremost, remember that everyone has vomited
sometime or the other in his or her life, so do not
be embarrassed if you vomit.
You may get a sensation
of food rushing up your throat. If you feel like throwing
up, go straight to the bathroom or a sink. If you canít
manage that and puke right there & then, remain calm.
Call on a friend, teacher or a parent and tell them
what happened. Try to sit down and take a few sips of
water and try and catch your breath in between sips.
Most of the time, youíll feel better.
If the vomiting persists,
or you have a fever or headache, consult your doctor.
Your doctor shall prescribe some medicine to control
Thus, be assured that
vomiting is not in your control and if you vomiting,
keep yourself in control !!!
