Diarrhea Children Treatment
My son is 7, he's had loose stools like 4-5 times/day, for last 3 days. Last night was loose, greenish with red specks. Is this dangerous & treatment?
Loose stools is a symptom in which a person's stool (poop) does not hold its shape after it goes into the toilet.

More than 15 years of stomach pain, loose stools. Colonoscopy/endoscopies found no crowns or colitis...is IBS the only answer? No treatment helps.
Causes of diarrhea: First define the problem (soft or frequent stool?), circumstances under which diarrhea develops (malabsorption, pancreatic maldigestion, food intolerances, stressful times, exposure to ill individuals/infections, food poisoning, ischemic gut, inflammatory colitis, etc.), severity (stool volume, dehydration, blood, night-time awakening, weight loss), & duration. The "cure" depends on the above.
Is it possible to get Antibiotic-associated colitis without diarrhea? I seem to match up with all the symptoms but that, after a hefty triple therapy.
Dangerous C. diff: Yes, unfortunately it is possible to have colitis without diarrhea and if you think you have this, you need to be checked today by a doctor. Sometimes a patient may take an antidiarrheal or the illness itself causes a temporary 'bowel paralysis' so this needs to be evaluated for. A host of screening tests can help the doc make this diagnosis - so I suggest calling your primary MD and go to an E.R.
Diagnosis first: It depends on where the symptoms come from. Is it infections, is it inflammatory, is it a systemic process. For diarrhea you can avoid milk products. For muscle aches you can take analgesics. But you need to know what the true cause of all this is.

Diarrhea: If you have diarrhea drink water to hydrate yourself. You can also have clear soups / broths, unsweetened juices or oral rehydration solutions.

Depends on cause: That depends on why you have diarrhea. Diarrhea is sometimes caused by bacterial or parasitic infections that should be treated. In other cases, you just keep yourself hydrated and let it run its course.
BRAT Diet: Diarrhea can be acute secondary to viral or bacterial infection or chronic like in colitis (ulcerative and or Crohn's). The first lasts only for a few days and a diet based on Bananas, Rice, Apple sauce and Toast can help. The second type of diarrhea requires medications to help the inflammation of the lining of the colon.
