What is diarrhea?

 

Diarrhea is the condition of having atleast three loose or liquid bowel movements each day with or without fever or vomiting.

 

Infectious diarrhea or Acute gastroenteritis (AGE) manifests in an inflammation of the gastrointestinal tract, affecting the stomach lining as well as that of the small intestine.

 

Typically, the AGE diarrhoea lasts less than seven days and not longer than 14 days. It often lasts for a few days & can result in dehydration due to fluid loss.
