Hi. Thanks for the query. From the history, its apparent that your grandson is having gastrintestinal infection. If i were your doctor, I would start him on a course of antibiotics which would take care of the infection. If the symptoms have subsided, let him just have some curds (contains lactobacillus which is good for the gut) continue his normal diet. Avoid any aerated drinks.

Hi doctor. Thank you for taking my question. My friend is 72 years old and had the flu vaccine in the fall. The last 2 weeks he had stomach problems, vomiting and diarrhea about 5 times. Can it be the flu or something more serious? I am sorry but I don t see the answer to my question.
