Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Treating diarrhea is dependent on the cause. Viruses, bacteria, parasites, medications such as antibiotics, lactose intolerance, and digestive disorders can cause diarrhea.

Over the counter medications can help control diarrhea. Keeping well hydrated is important. Drink at least six 8-ounce glasses of fluids each day. Choose fruit juice without pulp, broth, or soda (without caffeine). Chicken broth (without the fat), tea with honey, and sports drinks are also good choices. Instead of drinking liquids with your meals, drink liquids between meals. Sip small amounts of fluids often.

Eating rice and bananas seem to help.
