Tpes of Diarrhoea:

Diarrhoea can be acute, chroniclpersistent diarrhoea and dysentery. 

If an episode of diarrhoea lasts less than 14 days, it is acute diarrhoea. Acute watery diarrhoea causes dehydration and contributes  to malnutrition. The death of a child with acute diarrhoea is usually due to  dehydration. If the diarrhoea lasts 14 days or more, it is persistent diarrhoea. Up to 20 per cent of episodes of diarrhoea become persistent. Persistent diarrhoea ofter,  causes nutritional problems  that contribute  to  deaths in children who have diarrhoea Diarrhoea with blood in the stool, with or without mucus, is called dysentry.  

The most common cause of dysentery is Shigella bacteria. Amoebic dysentery is not common in young children. A child may have both watery diarrhoea and dysentery.

ii)  Drugs  : Antibiotics 

iii)  Diet  : Food poisoning, Food allergy, Overeating, Starvation
