Diarrhoea and Vomiting – Dos and Don’ts

Diarrhoea and vomiting are common in adults, children and babies. They’re often caused by a stomach bug and should stop in a few days.

The advice is the same if you have diarrhoea and vomiting together or separately.

You can usually treat yourself or your child at home. The most important thing is to have lots of fluids to avoid dehydration.
