Were you looking for information about Diarrhea? Diarreha is a common misspelling of diarrhea.
Diarrhea is defined as loose, watery stools occurring more than three times in one day. It can last a day or two, or for months or years, depending on the particular cause. The problem can be caused by viral infections, bacterial infections, and parasites. While most people get better on their own, medical attention may be necessary if you have had diarrhea for more than three days, see blood in your stool, or have severe pain in the abdomen or rectum.
