Hi Afi, thanks for the question at HealthReplies.com.
Your consultation questions regarding liquid defecation for 7 days with a frequency of 5x/day. This condition can be said you have acute diarrhea. Acute diarrhea is a change in the form of feces into liquid, with a bowel movement frequency of more than 2x and lasting less than 14 days. This condition can be caused by:
Gastrointestinal infections such as bacterial, parasitic or viral infections
Use of drugs
Psychological factors such as stress
Because there are still several possibilities that occur, it is advisable to carry out further examinations to the doctor. To prevent diarrhea you can do at home such as:
Wash hands before eating
Avoid consuming food that is questionable
Avoid consuming raw food
Clean the house toilet as often as possible to reduce the risk of transmission
Watch for signs of dehydration such as nausea, persistent vomiting, weakness, refusal to eat, more and more frequent bowel movements. If there are any of the above signs, go to the doctor immediately
That's the information I can convey, hopefully it's useful
