HOMOEOPATHIC REMEDIES FOR ROTAVIRUS
Rotavirus is an infection that causes diarrhea. It's the most common cause of diarrhea in infants and children worldwide, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Before the development of a vaccine, most children in the United States had at least one bout with rotavirus by age 5.
Although rotavirus infections are unpleasant, you can usually treat this infection at home with extra fluids to prevent dehydration. Occasionally, severe dehydration requires intravenous fluids in the hospital. Dehydration is a serious complication of rotavirus and a major cause of childhood deaths in developing countries.
Symptoms--A rotavirus infection usually starts within two days of exposure to the virus. Initial symptoms are a fever and vomiting, followed by three to seven days of watery diarrhea. The infection can cause abdominal pain as well.
In adults who are otherwise healthy, a rotavirus infection may cause only mild signs and symptoms or none at all.
ARSENIC ALBUM 30-Arsenic Album is one of the most top Homeopathic medicines for rotavirus infection. There is copious diarrhoea and vomiting. Diarrhoea and vomiting appear after eating and drinking. The stomach can’t seem to hold even a little food or water. Any food or water consumed is soon ejected. Thirst for water in small quantities may be present. Fever may be an attending symptom.
PODOPHYLLUM 30-Podophyllum is another effective Homeopathic medicine for rotavirus infection. Here the stools are gushing, copious and watery. The stool is also highly offensive. The stool may be greenish in colour. It may contain undigested food particles, yellow sediments.
CHINA 30—China is highly effective where diarrhoea is attended with extreme exhaustion. The diarrhoea is also accompanied by excessive flatulence. The child feels exhausted, weak and even drowsy at times. Fainting spells are also common.
VERATRUM ALBUM 30-Veratrum Album is a leading remedy where dehydration is a key symptom. The stool is watery and evacuated forcibly. Abdomen pain may precede the stool. This is attended with copious vomiting. Dehydration arises from excessive fluid loss.
