Diarrhoea and vomiting are common in adults, children and babies. They’re often caused by a stomach bug and usually stop within a few days.
The advice is the same if you have diarrhoea and vomiting together or separately.
How to treat diarrhoea and vomiting yourself
You can usually treat yourself or your child at home. The most important thing is to have lots of fluids to avoid dehydration.
