Diarrhea is when stools are loose and watery. Diarrhea is a common problem. It may last 1 or 2 days and go away on its own. If diarrhea lasts more than 2 days, your child may have a more serious problem. It can be either a short term diarrhea or can be a long term diarrhea. When diarrhea lasts for 1 to 2 days we call it acute or short term diarrhea. When it persists for a few weeks then we call it a chronic or long term diarrhea. Short term diarrhea generally happens due to consumption of contaminated food or water. The long term diarrhea is mostly due to some disease like Irritable Bowel Syndrome or collitis.
Diarrhea can be caused by either bacterial or viral infection. It can also be a result of food intollerace or allergy. There are certain medications, especially antibiotics like Augmentin and Doxycyclene that may cause diarrhea. Some of the most common end easily noticeable symptoms of diarrhea are:
Swelling in abdomen
Fever and Nausea
In general conditions if the child is not responding to normal medicine then the child specialist may advise a stool test to diagnose if there is any bacterial infection. Treatment for diarrhea depends upon the age and symptoms of the child. In case child does not respond to oral medications then doctor may admist her or him for IV medications.

At Krishna Hospital, we have the faciltiy of inpatient treatment as well incase the child needs admission for administration of intravenous fluids and medications. The cost of the treatment also depends upon whether the treatment is being done on OPD basis or needs admission. If you have an individual health insurance policy then this treatment is covered after a period of 2 years from the date of inception of the policy. However if you are a beneficiary of company given policy then the treatment is covered from day one. Always go through the terms of your health insurance policy like room rent capping and co-payment to avoid any kind of financial shocks later on.
