Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

The symptoms you have described about your mother of having only water no stools/watery stools is most likely suggestive of a condition called gastroenteritis what you call as stomach flu. Gastroenteritis is the irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract.Its most common causes are:Food poisoning, viral infections, food allergies, improper diet, and intestinal parasites or bacterial infections.

Following is recommended for her now:

- Take tab. Loperamide to stop the diarrhea/loose stools/watery stools.

All these medications are available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help her greatly.If still the symptoms persists,then she need to go to ER as tests & antibiotics will be prescribed accordingly. Usually & most likely,the symptoms gets subside with these treatment & doctor visit is less likely required.

Do not forget to drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Dear customer

Don’t give her solid diet.Let her stomach rest for few hours after food poisoning., Start with liquid diet.Gradually increase the amount of liquid .Try clear liquids such as flat ginger ale or white soda, broths, popsicles, or apple juice. These will provide an oral source of fluids that are easily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.If clear liquids are tolerated, she can start to introduce solid foods.

Thank you.
