Female 25. I have had two bouts of explosive dark brown diarrhea over the past two hours. Should I be concerned?
Only if painful: I'd stay close to a toilet, (stay home), stay away from others (minimize spread), and drink plenty of fluids (alternate water and Gatorade).

My 15 month old sun is having diarrhea that is light brown for a couple days. He had a rock in one of his bm's which was about 1/2 inch round with no sharp edges. Since then he's had 6-8 light brown diarrhea diapers a day, but he's happy and is eating rea
Odds : Odds are that the diarrhea is not from the rock he ate, but from some other source such as a gastrointestinal virus. If he's happy and eating/drinking well, i wouldn't worry too much. Things you can do for him are: -stop giving juice (which can worsen diarrhea) and give oral rehydration solutions such as pedialyte. -continue a regular diet -watch for diaper rash -change diapers frequently and use a barrier diaper cream call your child's doctor if: -the diarrhea lasts longer than 7 days -for blood or mucus in the stool -fever -signs of dehydration such as no urine in 8 hours, dry, cracked lips, doughy skin, no tears, sunken eyes, irritability or lethargy legal disclaimer: I am providing this general and basic information as a public service and my response to this question does not constitute a doctor-patient relationship.

I have been having very light brown, flaky, diarrhea for about four days. My lower abdomen hurts even to touch.
Diarrhea and pain: If your symptoms have been going on this long - it's time to get checked. I would suggest calling your Primary doctor at once or going to an E.R. where they can check you for electrolyte (salt) imbalances and for signs of infection. If you have a fever - that's even more reason to go now. A self-limited gastroenteritis should be clearing up by now - hope you can get help today. ...Read more
