How to Treat Diarrhea. Symptoms of diarrhea include frequent loose
stools, abdominal cramps, and dehydration, all of which are uncomfortable for you or
your children. Because diarrhea is usually not a serious
illness, it can easily be treated at home. You will need Fluids Clean hands and doctor. Step 1. Treat your child’s diarrhea at home by increasing
fluids that help replace electrolytes, like sports drinks. For babies, offer them additional breast milk
or formula. Avoid plain water, fruit juice, and sodas. Step 2. Continue your child on their regular diet. Step 3. Frequently wash your hands and your child’s
hands. Keep suspected diarrhea contaminated areas
clean. Step 4. Consult a doctor if your child’s symptoms
do not improve within 24 hours. Call a doctor if your baby has not had a wet
diaper in over three hours, has a fever higher than 102 degrees Fahrenheit, is unusually
sleepy, has a dry mouth, or has bloody or black stools. Step 5. Treat diarrhea in adults by drinking plenty
of clear fluids such as water, broths, and gelatins. Avoid coffee, alcohol, and apple and pear
juices. Step 6. Gradually add solid and low fiber foods such
as soda crackers, toast, and chicken. Avoid dairy products, high fiber, and fatty
foods. Step 7. Consult a doctor if you are an adult and the
diarrhea lasts longer than three days, you are dehydrated, and you have severe rectal
or abdominal pain, bloody or black stools, or a temperature above 102 degrees Fahrenheit. Eating the right things — or getting the
right advice from the doctor — will have you back to your regular self in no time. Did you know Acute diarrhea is commonly caused
by consuming food or water contaminated with a viral infection, bacteria, or parasite.
