Diarrhoea

Avoid milk but drink plenty of water. 

If symptoms persist for more than 48 hours or if there is a continuous pain rather than separate bouts of stomach cramp or if there is blood in the stool then consult your doctor within surgery hours. 

Avoid dairy produce, fruit and fruit juice until symptoms settle.

Diarrhoea in babies should be treated by reducing their milk intake. Cooled boiled water should be offered instead.

Breast feeding should be continued. 

If symptoms carry on for 24 hours and there is no vomiting consult your doctor.
