Hi there.

Thanks for the query.

Usually children commonly develop Viral gastroenteritis consisting of Nausea, Vomiting, Diarrhea. There is no specific treatment other than proper hydration and prevention of dehydration. In this case, kindly give your children WHO Oral Rehydration Solution. This sachet has to be mixed in one litre of previously boiled water and feed your children how much ever they like. They can be fed this solution with spoon if they have severe nausea. This solution will prevent further diarrhea and also prevent dehydration.

If your children become weak, stop accepting feeds it is indicative of more powerful treatment strategy due to dehydration and should be taken to the Hospital.

Wishing speedy recovery.
