Your child squirms, complains of a stomach ache, has very loose stools ... He has diarrhea. Bacteria, viruses, dental flares, otitis ... the causes can be multiple. The most important thing is to moisturize it!


A bacterium is the cause of her diarrhea

  • Delicatessen, egg mayonnaise ... your child has eaten a spoiled food and the result is not long in coming. Ingested bacteria, most often salmonella or staphylococcus, cause disruption of the intestinal cells and, a few hours later, your child presents very liquid stools.
  • What has to be done. The slogan is simple: you have to rehydrate it. Consult the doctor who will prescribe treatment to limit water loss. Probiotics have also shown their effectiveness in cases of diarrhea. If your child has high fever or bloody feces, antibiotics may be prescribed after stool testing.

A virus contaminated it

  • Viruses, such as gastroenteritis, are most often responsible for diarrhea. Transmission is easy, by contact. The gut is badly produced glairy stools, sometimes bloody. Your child is also feverish and subject to vomiting.
  • What has to be done. Exit the bubble-free soda, instead of rehydration solutes sold in pharmacies. Easy to reconstitute (one sachet for 200 ml of mineralized water), they provide everything your child needs, namely water, mineral salts and sugar. Once the product is prepared, give it to drink fresh at will or in small amounts if your child is vomiting.
