Gastroenteritis is an infection of the gut (intestines). It causes diarrhoea and may also cause symptoms such as being sick (vomiting) and tummy (abdominal) pain. In most cases the infection clears within a few days, but sometimes it takes longer. The main risk is lack of fluid in the body (dehydration). The main treatment is to give your child lots to drink as they are losing lots of water. This may take lots of encouragement to keep them taking little sips whenever they can.

You should see a medical professional if the child looks dry or is passing very little urine, appears drowsy or confused,unable to keep fluids down, has blood in their diarrhoea or vomit, has severe tummy (abdominal) pain.

If they are vomiting up all of their fluids they may need some medication and then some time making sure they are drinking well before going home.
If the medication is not stopping the vomiting or they have lost a lot of fluid they may need to be sent to hospital for some intravenous fluids and monitoring.
