What to do if you have diarrhoea?

The patient should be given plenty of fluids along with ORSaline and no pomegranates.

Most tap water in cities has been contaminated by septic tanks or sewage lines. Some of the causes of diarrhoea include unsanitary living conditions, faeces near water sources, incorrect hand washing, unsanitary food storage, and ingestion of rotting refrigerated food in shops, restaurants, or at home.

When someone has diarrhoea and has loose stools three or more times per day, the patient should take ORSaline.


One packet of saline should be mixed with half a litre of water. Adults (over the age of 10) who have diarrhoea should drink a glass (250 ml) of saline after each bowel movement. If a kid has diarrhoea, they must be administered saline after each bowel movement in an amount equal to their weight in teaspoons or the number of bowel movements.

If the child vomits, feed it slowly, with a teaspoon of saline every 3 or 4 minutes. In addition to saline, children under the age of two must be nursed, and this should not be denied under any circumstances.

Patients older than 6 months should have a normal diet in conjunction with ORSaline.

The patient should be given lots of fluids, such as bottled water, broth, soup, and ORSaline, but not soft beverages, fruit juice, grapes, or pomegranates.

Children aged 6 months to 5 years should be given one zinc tablet mixed with water every day for 10 days. However, if the patient’s condition does not improve or worsens, parents should visit their local hospital, health centre, or doctor as soon as possible.

How to avoid diarrhoea?

Diarrhoea is a waterborne disease caused by drinking contaminated water and eating rotten food, according to experts.

To avoid being infected with diarrhoea, individuals should boil tap water, then place it in the oven for further five minutes before drinking it cold.

If there is no boiling system, water can be made safe by adding one water-purifying chlorine tablet per 3 litres.

Eating unsanitary and street food can result in diarrhoea.

Prior to eating, people should properly wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.

Furthermore, after using the toilet or cleaning the baby’s toilet, wash your hands with soap.

Children should not be fed anything in the feeder. If it is necessary, the feeder should be washed.
