And I am talking about the one where you kakcrap for days......

Got this great little piece of "boere raad" when we went hunting in the karoo a few years ago.

I was literally drained from every drop of fluid in my body, been running (excuse the pun) for 3 days straight.
No pills worked until and old oompie/doctor told me to have 4 drops of dettol in half a glass of milk. First I was like :wtf:

Went home and tried it, only thing is that it taste as vile as they come and 3 days afterwords you still burp dettol.
Anyways, cleared my little gogga I had and on we went....

Please note:

Only use the original dettol, flavoured ones does not taste any better.
If you are lactose intolerant, drink it with water (more disgusting that milk)
DO NOT DRINK THE WHOLE BOTTLE, you will kill yourself.

So to all the hikers, campers, boswa joggies etc, take a little bottle of dettol on your next trip.

You will thank me later.

A double Bells.
If it doesn't work, another.
And so on.
It might not help for the initial complaint but you won't care either.;)

Dis hoekom jy nie die hele bottel dettol uit suip nie..... Ha ha ha ha
Well, something more palatable than dettol that works to settle my stomach is lipton ice tea, it also helps rehydrate.

Hell, one time a bunch of potency shooters also cured such an affliction I had.

The Dettol remedy is new to me, but heard from the same pharmacy in Prieska how to stop an irritating cough.

You take 2 large tablespoons of original Borstol, and 2 large tablespoons of Castor Oil.
The Borstol tastes so bad, you won't want to cough, and the Castor Oil will ensure that you don't.

It's a pity that they took Chamberlain's Colic Remedy off the shelves some years ago. That stuff REALLY worked.

Pectrolyte is what our household believes in these days.

Considering you waited till after 3 days to do it, I honestly don't think the dettol did anything, as you already had ridden out the worst of it.
Also don't ingest dettol it's an antiseptic meant for external use only. It can actually end up doing more harm then good when ingested.
