Diarrhea is a common condition in which a person experiences frequent and loose or watery bowel movements. It is often caused by a viral or bacterial infection, food poisoning, or a reaction to the medication.
Symptoms of diarrhea may include abdominal pain, cramping, and dehydration. Treatment for diarrhea may include over-the-counter medications to relieve symptoms, such as anti-diarrheal medication or rehydration solutions.
In some cases, diarrhea may require medical attention, especially if it persists for more than a few days or if there are signs of dehydration.
Prevention measures for diarrhea include practicing good hygiene, such as washing hands frequently and properly preparing food, and avoiding foods or drinks that may cause diarrhea.
