Hi there ...

This seems to be a bad stomach flu , this may need Intravenous hydration with ringer lactate , don't try to stop Diarrhea it will worse condition .

Use of Yogurt is good , avoid coffee , chocolate , cheese , fatty meals and cola drinks .

Pedilayte solution will help you out .

It will take almost 3 days to recover , but keep in mind that you should be well hydrated .

Antibiotics are not indicated in this case , just fluid balance .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
