Gastroenteritis

Gastroenteritis is a condition wherein the stomach and the small intestines become irritated and inflamed due to a virus or bacteria. Patients with gastroenteritis suffer from diarrhoea and vomiting. Gastroenteritis is self-limiting and may not require any medication; however patients that suffer from watery diarrhoea should take more fluids than usual to correct electrolyte imbalances. Anti-viral medications and antibiotics are prescribed when for worsening symptoms.
