Viral GI illness

COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Christopher Marshall is on the case of a viral GI illness.

The symptoms include nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Alcohol gel hand sanitizers really do help and are a convenient way to reduce germ exposure when soap and water are not conveniently available.

Use the BRAT diet, (bananas, rice, applesauce, toast), for diarrhea and keep up with replacing fluids.
