2yo has been having diarrhoea for three days and is very uncomfortable. Wriggling around, can't get settled. Says her legs hurt sometimes, says her nappy hurts.

No fever that we can recognise (got no thermometer as we're on hold,) but quite a fast heart beat. Very tired.

It's not a stomach bug as we've been alone in a house for five days and not been out. No one else ill.

Is this a case for the doctor or ride it out? Doctor is 50 miles away (we're on a remote mountain top.) I don't have calpol I only have phenergan.

I think you need to get to a dr - 2 is very young still. Fast heart rate could indicate dehydration.

Try dioralyte rehydration salts. You can buy them over the counter.

She may just be feeling a bit empty and dehydrated! Plenty of bland foods that aren't going to upset her stomach too.

Hope she's better soon!
