||Infants and young
children can become easily dehydrated and parents and guardians need to be
advised about children wearing cool clothing and drinking enough fluids for
the conditions. In the event of diarrhoea occurring, oral rehydration
solution (ORS) is needed and the use of ORS should be explained to parents
and guardians. Commercially available ORS should be included in the medical
kits of those travelling with children. ORS is widely used and may be
available in-country from reliable sources whilst travelling.
