Anti biotics are prescribed for stomach bugs
I had a bad one, first round of “normal anto-bios” did nothing so I got stronger ones and a stool sample taken revealed I had E-Coli … was given a letter and told if I got sick again to go to A&E with the letter.
If you have a holiday I’d go back and demand anti-bios and a stool sample be taken, you might want a better story/excuse than I’ve a holiday …Posted 4 years agobwfc4eva868Member
I have a stomach bug too. It feels like norovirus which I’ve had and even though it’s summer can still be picked up. It’s just more common in winter due to people being indoors and it spreads easier. Felt like crap yesterday, but now just got a churning stomach and shits. But no more vomiting. Water and lucozade are working for me, water to hydrate, lucozade to keep sugar levels up if I can’t keep food down.Posted 4 years agomakecoldplayhistoryMember
I don’t remember what I had but I took av antibiotics and was on a drip for a day as I couldn’t keep down liquids. When I said I thought I could hold down some soup, it was brought to my bedside in a nice china bowl – go private 🙂
On a more serious note, my friend’s 9 month old daughter went to hospital a few days ago with salmonella, staphylococcus and e-coli. The Dr.s said they’d never seen all three at the same time. She was on adult doses of av antibiotics for three days and is still taking monster doses orally now.
Hope you’re feeling better soon.
When you can eat again, live yoghurt, Yakult and the like will replenish all the good bacteria in your tummy. Antibiotics kill them all; they don’t differentiate between the good and bad ones.Posted 4 years agoste_tMember
I remember having a bad one a few years back. I was in bed for a week, everything I ate/drank quickly projectiles out one way or another.
I did at one point run out of bog roll and had to brave the 2 minute walk to the shop. I made it about half way before the inevitable happened. I did have a little cry.
Good luckPosted 4 years agoglobaltiMember
Go to the chemist and get some sachets of oral rehydration salts, they are miraculous. If you can’t get out, read up on the web how to make your own.
A bad stomach bug from dodgy food can be treated with three Ciproflaxacin tablets at 12 hour intervals. It says in the instructions that you don’t need to finish the full packet. I carry them, rehydration salts and Lomotil on trips to Africa and can sort most problems pretty effectively.Posted 4 years ago
