​Is There Any Way To Prevent My Child From Getting Diarrhoea?

  • It is difficult to prevent your child from coming into contact with germs that cause gastroenteritis.
  • These germs are present in the community all the time.
  • However, good hygiene habits will minimise the risk of spreading the infection.
  • For newborns and infants, bottle hygiene is very important. Milk bottles need to be sterilised either by boiling or with the use of sterilising tablets.
  • For other children, handwashing before meals and good toilet habits should be taught.
  • Vaccination against rotavirus infection for young baby is available.
