Hello Donna, thanks for the question.
Liquid BAB is also called diarrhea, which is a change in stool condition where the stool becomes more liquid or soft with a frequency of 3 times or more in 24 hours. This diarrhea has many causes, it can be caused by viral, bacterial, parasitic infections, food poisoning, allergic reactions, drugs, and so forth. In children and adults the cause of diarrhea that is often experienced is a viral infection, namely Rotavirus. In addition, it can also be caused by Norovirus, Adenovirus, and Astrovirus. This viral infection can be transmitted through direct contact, such as shaking hands, through food, drinks, or objects contaminated with the virus. Transmission will be more risky for people who have the habit of not washing their hands before eating and after defecating or urinating, often eating foods that are less hygienic, being in a dirty environment, and so forth. In addition to liquid bowel movements, other symptoms experienced can include nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, abdominal pain, and so forth. If the defecation occurs continuously, causing dehydration, high heat up to 40C, or liquid defecation accompanied by blood, or if it has been treated but complaints do not improve, you should consult your doctor. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination and additional examinations if needed, such as blood tests, stools, etc. to help find out the cause of the onset of complaints. The main treatment for diarrhea is fluid therapy, which means that people with liquid bowel movements should not get dehydrated, so it should be recommended to increase the consumption of water or ORS solution every time the bowel movement, or given intravenous fluids if orally does not work. Other treatments are tailored to the cause of the complaint. Diarrhea caused by viruses can generally heal itself without treatment, generally can last 1-3 days, but can take up to 8-10 days longer depending on the person's endurance. We recommend that you multiply the consumption of water at least 2L / day, or ORS solution every time CHAPTER, consumption of healthy and nutritious foods, eat foods with a small portion but often, eat soft foods first, avoid consuming milk, yogurt, coffee, alcohol, cheese, food spicy, bersantan, high fiber, or high fat.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
