Diarrhea and vomiting can be another symptom of the flu, especially in children. It is really important to prevent dehydration by offering lots to drink in addition to regular feedings. Water, juice, or flat ginger ale are options for less severe cases. You can also buy rehydration products such as Pedialyte® or Hydralyte™. Small, frequent meals can help with nausea and, if your child is over the age of 6, you can try dimenhydrinate (Gravol®). The main thing though, especially with younger children, is to watch for signs of dehydration. These signs include thirst, dry mouth, crying with little or no tears, fever without sweating, less pee (fewer than 4 wet diapers in 24 hours), sunken eyes, and skin that does not quickly return to normal after being gently pinched up (try the skin on the back of your child’s hand or on their belly). If your child has these symptoms or if the diarrhea and/or vomiting does not go away and is severe, take your child to see the doctor.
