Stopping : Stopping dairy is a good idea. Good foods for diarrhea include rice, bananas, and soft foods. Avoid citrus fruits or vegetables. Soft bread or dry cereal would be fine. Avoid gatorade as it can increase diarrhea because of its sugar content. If her diarrhea continues, or if she gets fever, pain, blood in her stool, vomiting or rash then she would need to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more

Should I be worried about a sandy, dark brown (not black) sinking diarrhea with a lot of separate floating grease? I've also been extremely dizzy.

Two things...: (1) This diarrhea, if acute, could represent an infection that requires investigation and/or treatment and (2) the dizziness suggests that you may be dehydrated because of the volume loss in the diarrhea. As such, I would certainly be concerned and would see a doctor in an ED or urgent care center today for an evaluation. ...Read more

My 2yr old son has had diarrhea for a few weeks, not unhappy, past 2days it is watery, large volume, orange & full of black sandy specks. Smells bad!

Check diet, then...: Make sure the child's diet is not too heavy in simple sugars (like sucrose or fruit juices) and that the child is getting plenty of multigrain complex carbs.

But if he is feeling ill, fever, blood in stool or not better with the dietary interventions after a week, need to see his doc! ...Read more

See doctor if it lasts more than a week or immediately if any pain. ...Read more
