Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

Cramp is due to intestinal infection.

Mostly it is due to viral infection.

In case of bacterial infection antibiotic will be needed.

Gaviscon would not help here.

Buscopan can reduce the spasm and cramps.

Take oral rehydration solution, gatorade and other fluids in small amount frequently so that you may not vomit.

Popsicle, ginger ale can help in nausea.

Peptobismol can be taken.

If the symptoms continue, I would advise to have a review by your doctor or urgent care.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
