Management and Treatment of the condition and complications if left untreated

Treatment mainly involves rehydration, replacing lost fluids and electrolytes. Over-the-counter medications may be used to alleviate symptoms, but antibiotics are not typically prescribed for viral gastroenteritis. Complications if Left Untreated: Dehydration is the primary concern if left untreated, especially in infants, older adults, or those with weakened immune systems.
