Hi, my daughter had...

Hi, my daughter had viral gastroenteritis a week ago and she got better after 24 hours. About two days ago she started having loose stools. Today she complained that she didn't feel well. Her appetite is low but she is hydrated. There hasn't been a fever. Is it normal for a stomach but to lag like this? What can I do?

Doctor's Assistant: How long has this been bothering you? Are you experiencing any vomiting or nausea?

It's my daughter. She felt like she was going to throw up again today, but didn't. She hasn't thrown up since the but started last Friday.

This still sounds like a viral gastroenteritis and that usually runs its course in about a week

For now I suggest oral probiotics, a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day and the BRAT diet of bananas, rice, applesauce and toast along with plenty of juices

Please let me know if you need any more information

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.
