DD (7) has been complaining lately of stomach ache and has had diarrhoea.

She's saying her tummy really hurts and is crying.

Any suggestions on what to give her?

NHS website said just fluids and rehydration sachets. But they won't stop the pain.

We are in full norovurus hell here. Calpol / bruphen for pain. Water and dry snacks ( crackers etc ). Hopefully only lasts a short while. Hot water bottle great idea
