Hi,
How is your mom? Prolonged diarrhea persisting for more than 2 days may be a sign of a more serious problem. And it is important that dehydration is avoided.  It is also essential that the underlying cause is identified in order to treat it properly. Possible causes  include viral, bacterial, parasitic infections; food intolerance; reactions to medicine; intestinal diseases; and functional bowel disorders. Chronic diarrhea may also be a feature of a chronic disease such as inflammatory bowel disease, colitis, Crohn’s disease, celiac disease or irritable bowel syndrome. Further evaluation may need to be done to help determine the underlying cause. Take care and do keep us posted.
