Diarrhoea symptoms & treatment

THE PROBLEM

Diarrhoea is the 2nd leading cause of death in India. The most common causes of diarrhoea amongst children are viral infections and bacterial infections which needs medical attention. There is often a delay in initiating treatment as majority of Indian mothers wait for 24 hours before taking the child to a doctor for treatment. The treatment is often incomplete as mothers stop medicines as soon as symptomatic relief has been achieved.
