Just recently he was was suffering with high fever and loose motions. Doc medication was done for gastrotitis. But again today he keeps having pain in his stomach and feels nauseatic while eating. What shud we do in this regard. My email is YYYY@YYYY
hi, thank you for your query, gastro enteritis in a 7 yr old child is mostly due to rotavirus infections. and in these cases antibiotics are given as symptomatic treatments.
the complaints of loose stools and nausea will persist till the virus is shed from the body completely. hence it will take some time. in the meantime you can start using ORS(oral rehydration solution) nad anti emetics it will take care of your child's hydration at the same time maintaining electrolyte balance.
thank you, wishing you good health
