Causes Frequent Colds And Diarrhea?
Hello my name is Desy I am 20 years old and I often catch a cold and have diarrhea … Is that a serious problem?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In the medical world, the term cold is unknown. Catch a cold itself is a layman's term that can refer to different complaints. Therefore, it needs to be clarified first, what kind of cold do you mean? How many times do you defecate in a day? Is the faeces very runny? How many days has your complaint appeared?
Frequently, the term colds by ordinary people is used to describe the sensation of a bloated stomach, nausea, accompanied by dizziness, muscle aches and joints, weakness, and fatigue. If it is true that this complaint is your intention, and this complaint appears accompanied by diarrhea, then the possibility of this condition refers to:
Dyspepsia (increased stomach acid)
Digestive infections, can be due to bacteria, viruses, or parasites
Irritable bowel syndrome
Others, such as food allergies or malabsorption, poisoning, infections of other organ systems, side effects of drugs, hormonal influences (such as during early pregnancy or before menstruation), etc.
Whether or not your condition is serious depends on the underlying cause. Frequently, if the diarrhea that you experience does not exceed 5 times a day, not accompanied by severe vomiting, fever, bloody or slimy stools, weakness, and other severe complaints, this condition is not dangerous. You can first resolve your complaint with the following suggestions:
Drink more water
Eat a little but often and regularly
Don't eat spicy, sour and high-gas foods (like coconut milk, fried foods, or soft drinks)
Eat first food that is easily digested, such as porridge or food
Do not snack haphazardly, especially food and drinks that are not clear of cleanliness
Make sure you always wash your hands before and after eating, after going to the toilet, and after handling something dirty
Do not carelessly take medication without a doctor's prescription
Get more rest
If complaints occur continuously for up to 3 days or more, even to cause the appearance of danger signs as mentioned above, you should go to see your doctor directly or a specialist in internal medicine to be treated properly according to the cause yes ..
I hope this helps.
