Hi everyone,

Well my little one has gotten her first stomach virus. I'm real good with common medicines, but I'm not so great at homeopathic/all natural treatments.

Does anyone have any good ways to treat diarrhea... other than a cork, LOL. I am currently trying rice water... any other remedies that have worked for you.

Thanks ?

Well, I'm not sure about a remedy but one thing you need to make sure that you do is keep her well hydrated. Check with your local pharmacy about a pedialyte type solution or even just some water. Since this is her first stomach virus, I'd call your pediatrician if you have one. They probably have a preferred course of action. Plus, if she's on any medications they should also be aware of this. Hope this helps. Please let us know how little one is feeling.

I agree with Jannine. You have not mentioned how old your child is but I know from experience that if the DH contiunes for more than 4 days then you should seek medical attention (assuming you haven't already). I recently took my little one to docs and it was gastroenteritis. There is no treatment and is just a case of extra fluids. If your child will not take fluids, try puttingthe water onto a spoon. I was also told that if your child still wants milk they can. Research shows that it does not 'feed' the bug. Good luck!

Try the BRAT diet. Bananas, Rice, Apples and Toast. Apple juice creates diarhea, but apples help with taming diarrhea. Mother in law is a pedes nurse, it has worked for me for the 5 years I have been a mom, (starting when they were 3 months old) If they're infants, try shaving the apple with a vege. peeler. and let them suck on the apple shavings.

My son last year had the rotavirus. Not fun at all. I had never been so stressed out in my life then I was for th 14 days that I had to deal with this. Anyways, I don't have any remedies but as Jannine said make sure you keep your little one hydrated. I was told that if the butt got to raw (sore) that I could use mylanta (yes mylanta) on that area.

If anyone want to see a good movie, I recommend "Diarrhea of Anne Frank"

Here's a fun fact, ladies. Did you know that Princess Di's full name was Diarrhea?
