Good evening, thanks for the question

Acute enteritis is inflammation of the intestinal mucosa. Common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. In acute enteritis, intestinal irritation that occurs can damage the gastrointestinal mucosa. Intestinal mucosa when inflammation takes time to be able to recover as usual. The time needed for recovery can vary depending on the severity, but generally lasts about 5-7 days.

Provision of intestinal probiotics and zinc in acute diarrhea conditions is known to accelerate the regeneration of the intestinal mucosa so that it is expected to reduce the duration of diarrhea and reduce other accompanying symptoms such as vomiting. However, administration of zinc can interact with a number of antibiotics, so consult with your doctor first to suggest its use.

It is also important to apply clean living to prevent the recurrence of conditions like this. Take care of personal hygiene by using clean water or do the habit of washing hands and also pay attention to food hygiene because food is one source of transmission of the virus and which causes enteritis.

Related to food, you can consume sources of carbohydrates and cereals such as potatoes, rice, oatmeal, flour, etc. which are added with salt if you have liquid diarrhea. Other foods such as boiled vegetables, bananas, or soup are also good for consumption.

So, hopefully it can be useful
Wassalam.
