How long to wait before taking solid food after diarrhea and vomiting?

Food after sickness: This will vary, but usually start with clears. If okay advance to soft, mushy food (banana, rice, oatmeal) and as better move to a regular diet. Don't overindulge too early and avoid the alcohol soda until better. Starting a probiotic can help your body's healthy gut bacteria recover faster. Drink lots of water. ...Read more

Instead of remaining a shaped piece of poop, the poop spreads out in the toilet bowl water. Very loose stool is called diarrhea.

Baby lost appetite after dose 1 omnicef (cefdinir). Now diarrhea & vomiting after dose 2. Both taken with food. If stop antibiotic, how long until feels better.

Up to 10 hours: The majority of the medication should clear your baby's system after 9 or 10 hours, less than that if some of the dose was vomited. It will be important that your doctor is notified of this reaction so that an alternative medication can be prescribed to complete treatment of the original infection. Rehydration with a solution such as Pedialyte may help her feel better sooner. ...Read more

Food diary.: Keep a food diary and see if anything in particular might set this off. Avoid splenda (sucralose), sorbitol (gummy candies, sugar-free gum), too. If your doc is stumped, get a referral to a pediatric gastroenterologist, since this is certainly not normal! ...Read more

Had hydrotherapy Colonic 6 days ago. Worried Ihave perforated my bowel. sick 3 days after w/diarrhea & vomiting. ok now. Could it be a perforation?

Unlikely: A perforation can cause sepsis/peritonitis and can be fatal if left untreated. I'm glad you're feeling better but we recommend against colonics as they have not been shown to have any significant benefits and do have risks. ...Read more

Long bike ride in the heat. Immediately after had diarrhea, vomiting & nausea. Better 6 hours later after nap/Gatorade. Heat exhaustion or norovirus?

Long bike ride in the heat. Immediately after had diarrhea, vomiting & nausea. Better 6 hours later after nap/Gatorade. Heat exhaustion or norovirus?

Overheating: Almost certainly the exercise and heat. This is a bit like asking whether a sudden headache is from clubbed on the head with a baseball bat or a brain tumor instead. Such a coincidence could occur but obviously is unlikely. Unless you have been definitely exposed to someone with viral gastroenteritis, it's probably not the problem. And norovirus wouldn't improve so fast with fluids and rest. ...Read more

I got sick (vomit + diarrhea) after eating oysters last friday. This lasted 24 hours. The nausea is still severe now though - on tue. Concerned?

Vibrio vulnificus: The major risk here is infection with halophilic (salt-loving) vibrio species. This is a curved bacteria that like vibrio parahemolyticus (the most common cause of food borne gastroenteritis in japan), can do the same in the usa, but in people who may have high levels of serum iron they can develop life-threatening sepsis. If your illness continues over the next several days see a doctor. ...Read more
