What would cause me to have sour diarrhea?

Sour diarrhea?: What do you mean by "sour diarrhea"? Are you talking about the smell? How long have you had this? Any other symptoms associated with it? If your symptoms persist or get worse, then you should probably see a doctor. A lot of diarrhea resolves on its own within a couple of days. I wish you the best.

Invest in healthy nutrition, weight loss, diet, etc.
