In brief: Yes

To relieve diarrhea you should limit your self to clear liquids until the diarrhea slows down.
You can start with foods that will have a tendency to harden the stools like bananas, rice, apples. Avoid milk products and keep up fluid intake to replace stool losses.

Persistent diarrhea, especially if with blood or pain, warrants evaluation. Don't wait please--

I recomend a variety of foods to help slow digestion/diarrhea: apples as sauce or preferably whole, pasta, bananas, some cheese and potatoes, steamed rice.
Avoid apple juice, or other fruit juices, milk and fruit.
