Operation Ouch!- Diarrhoea and Vomiting Overhanging boy

Tummy bugs are very common when you're younger. A tummy bug might give you diarrhoea (runny poo) and make you vomit (be sick).

Check out this video from our friends at Operation Ouch! with more on diarrhoea and vomiting, the importance of drinking plenty of fluids when you’re feeling poorly and advice on getting you better.

Did You Know?
Brain borg If you're poorly and don't feel like eating, you can last a couple of days without having solid foods as long as you're drinking rehydration drinks- these have all the sugars and salts in that you need.

Thank you to Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland CCGs, University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust, University Hospitals of Bristol NHS Foundation Trust, Dr. Mark Lyttle and Dr. Damian Roland for their input and resource but especially to the Operation Ouch team for their enthusiasm for this initiative.

The best way to tell if you're drinking enough is by the colour of your wee and how many times you're going a day.
