1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Many GI infections need no specific treatment other than replacing fluids and electrolytes, controlling diarrhea and nausea and vomiting and then watching carefully.
Some GI infections may need antibiotic treatment, but would need to know the cause of the infection to give specific advice.
