Maybe: Diarrhea most often resolves on its own, so it really depends on how long you've had it and how severe it is... Be sure to keep hydrated and avoid eating raw veggies and fruits that are hard to digest. Hope you're on the road to recovery soon!

Depends: How long have you had diarrhea? How many motions a day? Have you lost weight? Did you get dehydrated? If you have had unintended weight loss, or if the diarrhea is interfering with your life, you should see your doctor.
