Oral rehydration solution
Oresol or oral rehydration solution is often given to children who are experiencing fluid loss due to severe diarrhea and poor fluid intake. When large amounts of fluid are lost from the body, children and adults need to replenish both water and electrolytes. Simply increasing the amount of water will not be enough. Children should be given oresol (available in the drugstore) or sports drinks on top of water. You can also make oral rehydration solution at home with one liter of water, eight teaspoons of sugar, and one teaspoon of salt.
