Does Gatorade Help Diarrhea
My 21 month old son has 3 loose stools a day his dr said to give him Gatorade but is there anything else I can do for him? Food to avoid etc?

8 yr old daughter came home with diarreah, 2x in the last 2 hrs. Im giving her gatorade to drink with apples and bananna's. When to take her to a doc?
Diarrhea care: You take her to doc if she has uncontrolled vomiting, blood in the diarrhea, no urine output in 12 hours or severe stomach pain that you can't control at home. Also if other symptoms - for instance, hurts when she pees, may indicate uti. Also recommend starting probiotic (tablet or via yogurt), and get some protein back in diet - scrambled eggs and peanut butter on crackers great if not vomiting. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yellow diarrhea for 2 days and nauseas through the whole day for 5 days and lost all my appetite please help me?
Gastroenteritis...: I would recommend seeing a physician ASAP. It is likely that you are dehydrated.

Hydrate with an electrolyte containing beverage such as Gatorade and seek medical attention. ...Read more

My 7 yr old son has had diarrhea for 3 days. Day 1 he also had vomiting. Along with a temp 2 of these days. Is there anything that can help him.
Fluids: For kids with vomiting and diarrhea, the most common cause will be viral and the best cure is rest and fluids - it can be juice, 7-up, pedialyte, gatorade, jello or soup - whatever he can keep down that has some sugar and electrolyte in it. These illnesses are self-limited anywhere between 1-5 days. If he cannot keep fluids in, he will need to be checked by a doctor. ...Read more
