Question: What can I do for my son with viral gastroenteritis? This is my 5 year olds 5th day of vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. He's been to the Dr. and the hospital. Basically they are just telling me to deal with it, but he's been sick for FIVE DAYS. He wont let me rub his head, and i'm constantly asking if I can get his bathrobe or slippers or blanket and he doens't need anything. We rented a few movies, but I can't think of anything else to do for him. Any suggestions?

Answer: Well, since it's viral, you just have to wait for his immune system to take care of it. Lots of vitamin C will boost immune efficiency and MIGHT reduce sick time by a day or two.
