I wanted to share about the medicine I used to cure my child of his tummy bug. My 2 year old got a temperature, coupled with terrible diarrhoea at the weekend. The chemists all just seem to suggest the same - Dioralight (which my children refuse to take as they hate the taste!), but nothing else seemed to be available.
So, my local chemist down the road suggested Kaolin mixture for children, which completely cleared his stomach up within a day. Boots don't seem to know what this is - they sell it for adults - but said they had never heard of the childrens one! Asking around my son's school, no one had heard of Kaolin, it only costs about a pound and is the best thing I have come across for a badly runny tummy.
Basically, I wanted to tell other mums about it as I wish I'd known about this when my older two were little!
