4 doctors agree

In brief: Fluids

This RNA virus is now called "norovirus" and is the GI bug that vexes cruise ships.
Gently rehydrate with water or a sports drink diluted 50/50 with water.Soups and light foods.I try to avoid anti-spasmotics like immodium or Lomotil (diphenoxylat and atropine) as i trust the body to expel this nasty virus.Hand washing is critical to preventing spread.
