HOUSTON -- By following a few basic precautions, you can prevent water-borne illnesses, said Dr. Gordon Schutze, professor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine.

The most common water-borne illness is gastroenteritis, which can cause diarrhea. Skin infections and respiratory illnesses can also occur.

Follow these pool hygiene tips:

•Shower, using soap and water, before swimming. Wash the perianal area thoroughly.

•Check and change diapers frequently.

•Wash hands with soap and water after toilet use and diaper-changing activities.

•Infants and children who are not toilet trained should use proper-fitting swim diapers.

•Wash hands with soap and water before and after consumption of food and drink.

Children in diapers should not be allowed to sit down on splash pads. These have a water reservoir underneath that recycles water, so if a child has diarrhea, it can come back through the water spray to potentially contaminate others.

At lakes, avoid stagnant water and areas where there is raw sewage, fertilizer, or animal feces run off. At beaches, look for signs that warn of bacterial contamination and do not use the beach if there has been any contamination.
