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
