Just fluids: Rotavirus infection will resolve on its own. The home treatment is to avoid getting dehydrated. This would mean drinking fluids ( in some very serious cases it means getting fluids intravenously in the hospital.) for children there are over the counter liquid drinks that help replete important electrolytes ( salts) the body needs like "pedialyte".
