Diarrhea in Children

Don’t let diarrhea sideline your child. Know the common causes, the best ways to avoid it and how to help your child recover quickly.

The average American child will experience 7-15 bouts of diarrhea before their 5th birthday. Not only is diarrhea an inconvenience, keeping your child from school, sports and other important events, it can also be dangerous, leading to dehydration and other health complications. Arm yourself with the knowledge you need to relieve your child’s diarrhea quickly and safely.

Are There Ways to Prevent Children’s Diarrhea?

While you can’t eliminate your child’s risk entirely, but there are some steps you can take to reduce the likelihood of diarrhea.

Frequent Handwashing

Teach your children the importance of handwashing. Take extra time to wash your child’s hands if they cannot do it themselves. Handwashing is especially important after the bathroom and before meals.

Proper Food Hygiene

Food hygiene includes properly washing produce, thoroughly cooking meat, and disposing of expired foods.

Smarter Travel

When you travel, make sure your child drinks clean, bottled beverages and eats safe, cooked foods.

When Should you Seek Medical Attention?

Most cases of occasional diarrhea will resolve on their own and can be addressed with nourishing foods and plenty of hydrating liquids. However, diarrhea can lead to dehydration and some cases can be more serious and may be a symptom of a larger issue. Call your doctor if your child’s diarrhea lasts more than one day or if your child’s diarrhea comes with the following symptoms:

Lack of urination (no wet diapers after 3+ hours)

Fever of 102°F / 38.8°C

Bloody or black stools

Excessive drowsiness

A dry mouth or tongue

Crying without tears
