3-5 days depending: generally acute diarrheas are self-resolved within 3-5 days so any longer generally warrant MD attention. Red flags for earlier MD visit would include blood, fever, weakness, pain, or worsening diarrhea/symptoms. Meanwhle avoid milk/milk products, sugar substitutes, caffeine, and alcohol, and consider banana/rice/applesauce/toast (BRAT) diet
