Diarrhea is an unpleasant digestive disorder that nearly all of us have experienced many times in our lives.
It means loose and watery stools with more frequent trips to the toilet. The amount of stools passed is also increased.
The most common cause of diarrhea is infection either by bacteria, virus or parasite. Antibiotics can also cause diarrhea by destroying the good bacteria in the intestine.
It is necessary to identify the cause and then treat it accordingly.
Diarrhea lasting for more than 4 weeks needs to be investigated as it could be an indication of a serious underlying disorder.
Antibiotics are not of much help as they may aggravate the condition. Other conservative measures like increase in fluid intake help prevent dehydration.
A lot of electrolytes are lost from the body and they should be adequately replaced.
Proper hygiene should be maintained to avoid spread of infection.
Natural herbs are always a good choice for individuals who have a tendency to diarrhea.
