Dehydration in Children Treatment
Dehydration in children can be treated at home by replacing fluids with drinks such as Pedialyte, Pedialyte freezer pops, or any product similar that is designed to replace sugar and electrolytes. Children should take small sips every few moments. A BRAT diet may be started if vomiting has subsided for four hours. Medical treatment may include rehydration via an IV solution.
