Treatment of Rotavirus Infection in Children
There is no specific drug to treat this viral infection. However, the doctor may treat based on the symptoms that appear, for example, diarrhea causes the sufferer to become dehydrated.
Because toddlers, children, and the elderly are prone to dehydration , doctors will treat and prevent these things from happening.
Therefore, in addition to drugs, one of the treatments for rotavirus is taking ORS which cannot be replaced with drugs.
If the dehydration that occurs is severe, the child requires fluid intake directly into a vein through an IV.
