What Is Diarrhea?
Diarrhea is a condition in which your bowel movements are loose and watery. They also occur more frequently than usual and in larger amounts. This issue may be acute, persistent or chronic. Everyone has experienced diarrhea at some point in their life, but it is actually one of the most common reasons for people to see a physician for medical advice.
How long does diarrhea last?
The virus or infection should only last a few days but it may take up to a week for your bowels to become regular again. If you have only suffered from diarrhea for a few days or so, there is usually no need for you to be alarmed as this can be quite normal. The only time you should be concerned is when your diarrhea has lasted for a couple of weeks.
