Thanks for writing in.

It might be possible to get frequent diarrhoea under following situations

1. Water contamination
2. Food infection
3. Taking incomplete treatment for intestinal infections like enteric fever
4. Irritable bowel syndrome
5. Colitis

Please consult a gastroenterologist and get necessary investigations. A colonoscopy might be done if necessary.

hope this helps
