What is diarrhoea?

A person like Paula and Jep has diarrhoea when he/she has to poop very often, also, it comes out very liquid.

acute when it lasts less than two weeks,

prolonged when it lasts from two to four weeks,

chronic when lasting more than four weeks.


Usually, the bowel movement usually lasts between three and seven days if you do drink plenty of fluids and rest.
