Our expert says:
TB, it sounds like you’re starting to dehydrate. Oral rehydration fluid can be made by adding 8 teaspoons of sugar or honey and ½ a teaspoon of salt to one litre of water. The only problem with this solution is that the taste of it is enough to make healthy people vomit! A much better idea is to substitute the water with orange juice or half strength (50% water) orange juice. This tastes better, contains vitamins and is rich in potassium, the most important electrolyte that is lost. You can grate an apple and leave it in the fridge until it turns brown. Eating this should bind the stools. If it hasn’t cleared up by the end of the weekend, you will have to see a doctor. Good luck.
