  1. Hi and thank you for posting us at Medimetry.Vomiting with cough happens because cough triggers gag reflex in infants making them throw up.A child with cold or asthma flare up vomits if lots of mucus drains into the stomach and causes nausea.Your baby may need steam inhalation and nebulization if there is too much of mucus or if there is wheezing .Only a clinical examination can determine if baby needs these things.Please have a frank discussion with your doctor about the non response to medications.Hope it helped.Keep me posted.Take care and good day!
