If you are being sick or have diarrhoea and are losing too much fluid, you need to put back the sugar, salts and minerals your body has lost. A pharmacist can recommend oral rehydration solutions. These can be powders you mix with water to drink. Ask your pharmacist which rehydration solutions are right for you or your child.
