Hello,

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

Your symptoms are suggestive of stomach infection. You may take following over the counter medications;

1)) PeptoBismol

2) Dimenhydrinate (Dramamine) and meclizine hydrochloride (Dramamine Less Drowsy).

3) Fluids as much as possible

4) Gatorade / Pedialyte.

This is usually viral. But if you are unable to keep yourself hydrated or you have significant abdominal pain or fever you may consider going to emergency room.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Health Professional: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

You are very welcome, David.

Glad that you are feeling better.

The initial management of stomach infection is as following;

1) PeptoBismol

2) Lomotil; may only be given if the diarrhea is present and is vigorous.

3) Gatorade / Pedialyte

4) Plenty of fluids

5) BRAT diet; banana, rice, applesauce, toast. Vegetable broths / vegetable soups, coconut water also can help.

6) Probiotics

The primary aim is prevention of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. If the vomiting loss of fluids is too much or one is unable to drink enough liquids; one need antibiotics and / or intravenous fluids.

It is privilege assisting you.

The usual course of viral intestinal infection is 2-3 days. So your symptoms should resolve completely in next couple of days.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
