Were you looking for information about Diarrhea? Diarehea is a common misspelling of diarrhea.
Diarrhea is a common symptom that occurs about four times a year in the average adult. It can last a day or two, or for months or years, depending on the particular cause. It causes frequent bowel movements, and people who have it may pass more than a quart of watery stool a day. Acute diarrhea (which improves within two weeks) can be caused by bacterial and viral infections, while chronic diarrhea (which lasts longer than two weeks) may be caused by medications and certain medical conditions.
