Hi, welcome to Just Answer.

I'm Dr. Javid, and I'll assist you today.

How old is this person?

Any medical conditions?

Any accompanying fever?

I don't have any response so I will try and answer based on the information given.

You can treat this with Pepto-Bismol syrup and Nexium 20mg once a day.

If this is a female and there is any chance of pregnancy, don't take them.

Otherwise, you can get them from the pharmacy without a prescription.

The most important part of the treatment however is going to be good fluid hydration.

This can be done with oral rehydration salts/Pedialyte/Gatorade/clear juices as per your preference.

Some other measures that will help:

Also, take one serving of yogurt made from active cultures a day.

Avoid more than 100 mg of caffeine a day.

Avoid any alcoholic beverages.

Meals should be in small quantity, but more frequent.

Avoid high-fat, oily, or spicy foods till this resolves.

Bananas, rice, and apple are good.

If the person does not feel any better in a few days, they should go and be checked in person by their primary Dr.

I hope this helps?

Please let me know if you have any questions about this.
