Diarrhea.: there are many causes of diarrhea, ranging from infections with viruses, bacteria, or parasites, to medications, to reactions to food. Diarrhea usually resolves spontaneously after up to a week. As long as you don't have severe pain, rectal bleeding, or high fevers with the diarrhea, you should wait it out. Drink plenty of fluids. If it persists, or if any of the above happen, see your doctor.
