Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.These symptoms can be due to the virus or flu. Usually the symptoms tend to improve within a week. Bacterial infection is another possibility as well. Hence if no improvement in your symptoms it is better to see your doctor for further evaluation. You can try over the counter loperamide tablets to prevent diarrhea.

we live in west Africa I saw a doctor yesterday but I don't think he knew what he was taking about, what sort of over the counter medication could I buy thanks
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.
Loperamide tablets help with viral diarrhea. Also acetaminophen can be used for fever control. Plenty of fluids And i will also suggest stool tests to look for any bacterial or parasitic infection. Antibiotics like ciprofloxacin and metronidazole should be considered if no improvement in 3 days. Best wishes

I also have blisters around my mouth which are turning to scabs?
Expert:  Dr Basu replied 1 year ago.
Blisters can appear due to the viral infection commonly. They should improve on their own. You should also take a multivitamin daily to prevent any deficiency from diarrhea. Best wishes and happy new year

one last thing is there anything you can recommend for anti-sickness as it has prevented my sleep for the last 4 days which I think is the main contribution to the illness

You can use meclizine tablets for nausea, vomiting .
