Hi
As per your query,your brother developed infection of the gut,followed by meal.
Usually,i give an antibiotic like Ofloxacin and ornidazole along with a Pre and Probiotic capsule.If there is no response to above antibiotic,Rifaximine will be given.I also prescribe oral rehydration solution sachets.
Please consult your doctor and proceed.If the fluid loss is more,he may need Intravenous fluid administration.
Wish him good health and speedy recovery
Regards
