What are self care options for vomiting?

ANSWER

If you're vomiting, try these steps:

  • Drink small amounts of water, sports drinks, or clear liquids.
  • Don't eat solid food until vomiting has stopped.
  • When you can tolerate food, try small amounts of the BRAT diet. That's bananas, rice, applesauce, and toast.
