    Our nods in the sick bay with the trots. It seems they don't treat with immodium or similar. Is this the norm?

    As stated by Ninja, the person best placed to snap on the sterile gloves and give you an answer is @The guide when he spots this.

    Yea. Usually it’s just a case of keep hydrated with Diauralyte and moniter. Taking a stool sample of the situation dictates.

    To add to this, I’ve been advised a few time not to use immodium because we want the bug out, same with cough medicine, the cough brings the phlegm up and therefore brings the infection out

    Hi @Drumkit1 .
    Hope your Nod is soon feeling lots better.
    I've been told that Coca Cola (full sugar) can be really helpful as the sugar and caffeine will give him a bit of a boost and the bubbles should settle his stomach. Maybe one of his friends could get him some in the Naffy?
