What is Diarrhea?
Diarrhea is a common digestive problem that is characterized by loose or watery stools. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including infections, food intolerances, and certain medications. Symptoms of diarrhea can include frequent bowel movements, abdominal cramping, and dehydration.
When is it necessary to see a doctor?
If you experience persistent diarrhea, especially if accompanied by fever, dehydration, or blood in your stool, it's time to see a doctor for an evaluation. A doctor can recommend dietary changes, prescribe medication, or perform further testing to identify and treat the underlying cause of your diarrhea. Treatment for diarrhea can include rehydration with fluids and electrolytes, dietary changes, and medications to alleviate symptoms. In some cases, underlying medical conditions may be causing diarrhea, and addressing these conditions may help alleviate symptoms.
