HelloThis acts exactly like staph endotoxin, a form of food poisoning.Viral infection would not be as likely without other symptoms, such as fever.This usually is over in 6 to 8 hours.However, if you have any medical problems, or can not hold any fluids down at all, you should seek treatment now.We can not examine you, and we can not replace a doctors visit.I am a double board certified clinical doctor.Find me anytime by request, Dr. Thomas only, I am here by request. OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily
