Hi,

Thank you for posting your query.

The symptoms you have described are suggestive of infective diarrhoea, most likely due to viral infection.

As of now, you can start symptomatic treatment- replenishing the lost fluids (with intake of juice, water, etc), use of anti-emetics to stop vomiting (ondansetron), and lomotil to stop loose stools.

You should get better in a day or two. If not, you can consult a doctor, and get the stool examination done.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
