how to take care of a stomach virus!?

Supportive measures: Often, a "stomach virus" involves several days of variable amounts of nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. To put the stomach to relative rest; eat bland foods (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast). You may also consider other stomach soothers and Imodium (loperamide) ad if diarrhea is prominent. If vomiting symptoms are not quieting, you may need to see your fp for suppositories so you can maintain oral rehydration!
