In brief: Care supportive

Kids with rotovirus are generally treated with supportive measures.
Rehydration fluids, diet as tolerated and monitored urine output. Occasionally IV fluids are necessary. The virus will resolve within 3-8 days and gut recovery will follow close behind. There are no abx or anti-diarrhea meds that help this in a small child. An adult might try loperamide for the cramps & loose stools.
