Hello and welcome to Justanswer,I shall be consulting you today.

Okay so stomach bugs clear on their own mostly.

All you need to do is make sure that you drink enough fluids.

Take a soft diet like boiled rice and cereals.

Avoid spice,oily food and also avoid any caffeine for a few days.

Take an over the counter drug bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol) works by coating your stomach lining and protects stomach in cases of stomach virus.

I hope this helps.

Do let me know if you have more questions.

Please do leave a positive 5 star rating by simply clicking on the stars on top left or bottom corner of this thread so that I can be credited for helping you today.

You are not charged for rating positively and I will be here for any follow up questions.

Thank you.

Best wishes.

I feel better already! Thank 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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
