diarrhea won't go away!
« on: April 13, 2013, 04:38:43 AM »
I thought I'd ask here since I love this place! 
Anyway, my 12 yo came down with diarrhea on Monday and had it until Friday morning.  It wasn't a lot, just after meals on those days.  Thursday night he threw up but felt better.  I had given him Imodium AD on Wednesday (2 doses) and I think that is why he threw up the next day.

Thursday night my 4 yo came down with just a fever but woke up Friday with diarrhea along with my 6 and 10 yo!  They seem to have it after eating anything.  I have them on the BRAT diet.  I have been giving them one TTU in the morning and in the evening.  I am not giving them the Imodium though, I think this is a virus.

I am, I don't know what else to do.  They are staying hydrated and sleeping okay.  I just want this to not last another five days!  They don't have appetites either.

What should I add/do?

Reading through this thread should help: Chronic Diarrhea.  I'd definitely try probiotics and carob powder and maybe some hydrated bentonite clay.
