Were you looking for information about Diarrhea? Diareha is a common misspelling of diarrhea.
Diarrhea is a symptom -- it is not a disease. It is defined as loose, watery stools that occur more than three times in one day. The average adult has a bout of diarrhea about four times a year. Not everyone with diarrhea needs to see a healthcare provider. You should see a healthcare provider if diarrhea is accompanied by signs of dehydration, blood in the stool, or a fever of 102 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, among other symptoms. Also, because diarrhea in children can potentially be dangerous, you should not hesitate to call your healthcare provider for advice if your child develops diarrhea. Diarrhea treatment depends on the type of diarrhea a person has and what caused it -- and may sometimes involve medications or lifestyle and diet changes.
