9 month old randomly vomiting

DS is 9 months old and vomits his dinner in the evening if its not baby rice. Sometimes it will be straight after he has eaten and sometimes it'll be an hour or so after. The only thing that stays down is baby rice. He is a great eater and the vomiting doesn't bother him but I don't know what is causing the vomiting as it is only in the evening. This has been going on for about 3 weeks.
I took him to the GP last week who has put him on an antibiotic because his chest was wheezy but this hasn't settled the vomiting.
Could it be a food allergy or something simple?
I am really worried and am really hoping it it something simple as my DD was randomly vomiting and I just put it down to a tummy bug and she had a brain tumor.

Am looking for any advice to ease my worries

bump... was sick again yesterday morning. He only had milk, small bowl of porridge and half a pot of fromage frais.

Any ideas?

Would speak to your hv - a mindee of mine was referred to hospital as he was sick every time he ate lumps, even really small ones. Saying that, he was fine with BLW and finally, at around 16 months he was able to swallow lumpy food.

Thanks mousey. Have already spoken to HV, she told me to go to doctor which I did and he gave him antibiotics for his chest. He didn't seem too bothered by the vomiting.
DS can eat his dinner during the day no problem without being sick, it seems to be his evening tea at 5 o'clock he has the problem with, although yesterday he was sick in the morning. I don't think its the lumps he has problems with, but thanks for advice.
I started a food diary yesterday to see if there is any triggers but so far he hasn't been sick today.
