O.T. .....nausea meds? PIOG

My 3 year old has the stomach flu. Does anyone know of anything OTC that can help with nausea or diarrhea?

I can't get ahold of his doc's office, and I feel so horrible.

Help!

Crackers and clear fluids - water, flat ginger ale, weak ginger tea, weak mint tea...those are my go-to remedies for bad tummies. Hope she feels better!

For the teas, slice up fresh ginger and steep the slices in hot water for 5 minutes. For mint tea, bruise the leaves, then steep in hot water for 3-4 minutes. Sweeten with honey.

 bananas, chamomile or peppermint tea with honey also just plain old water is good for diarrhea

I believe that 1/2 of a non-drowsy dramamine is safe. Ask the pharmacist or your Dr. first of course.

Good luck!

If you have some already, he can take phenergan. I don't remember exactly, but I gave my 2yo 1/4 of what an adult would take.

(I am not a doctor and this isn't a substitution for professional medical advice ;-))

You can buy Emetrol at the pharmacy otc...it is for nausea. My kids don't like it, but you never know...I also have my kids smell alcohol swabs when they are nauseaus, it really helps...that's how I got through morning sickness...good luck
