Mkay my friend is sick and I was wondering if anyone had some ideas to help with some of the problems...

- You're sick and throwing up...how do you make it stop/settle your stomach?

- You're hot and cold. Anyway to fix this?

- What should you eat when you're no longer throwing up?

Take very small sips of water at a time. No more than 1 glass every hour or so. Also eat small amonts of dry toast or dry crackers. Just take it really slow

- You're hot and cold. Anyway to fix this?
Take a warm bath.

- What should you eat when you're no longer throwing up?
Take it really slowly at first. For the first few hours eat only dry carbs (crackers, toast etc), then slowly move onto other foods like pieces of apples, peanut butter on toast. My mum has always kept me away from dairy when I've been sick for a couple of days.

If you're throwing up you can't really make it stop, but don't eat anything until you're sure it's over with. Only take small sips of water. Once you feel up to it, start with crackers and dry or burned toast. If you're hot and cold wrap up in a blanket or put extra layers on that can be removed .

As to what to eat after you've finally stopped getting sick my Dad always followed the BRATS diet with my siblings and I. Bannas Rice Applesauce Toast Soup. It worked for me, but just remember to start slow and don't over do it. Also try Pedia-lite, I know it's for kids but part of getting sick means you're loosing a lot of your body's fluids that it needs to get better. Hope this helps.
