Brief Answer: Typical signs for stomach bug... Detailed Answer: Hi, The nausea and mild burning sensation in your stomach together with vomiting are typical signs of stomach bug. Usually, stomach bug is also associated with increased acid production. I'd suggest to: - drink more water - take otc tasectan, ors, and probiotics for the diarrhea - have light soups (with carrots) or banana with yogurt - avoid spicy, fatty foods - keep good hand hygiene If the symptoms will worsen or you'd have high fever, should consult your physician to rule out bacterial infection. If bacterial infection is set, a course with antibiotics is needed. Wish you fast recovery! Dr.Klerida Feel free to ask me other questions you might have!
