Brief Answer:
LOOSE STOOL

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

The likely cause of watery bowel movements is a gastrointestinal infection also referred to as gastroenteritis.

It can be potentially harmful if dehydration associated with the diarrhoea is not corrected.

Kindly answer the following to advise accordingly

For how long have you experienced watery bowels or loose stool
Is there blood in stool
Do you have a fever or associated abdominal pain
Are you allergic to any food product and do you experience similar symptoms in that case.


Wishing you best of health

Thanks

let me know if you have any query
