There are many different causes of diarrhoea, but a bowel infection (Gastroenteritis) is a common cause in both adults and children.

Gastroenteritis can be caused by:

a virus – such as norovirus or rotavirus
bacteria – such as campylobacter and Escherichia coli (E. coli), which are often picked up from contaminated food
a parasite – such as the parasite that causes giardiasis, which is spread in contaminated water

Most cases of diarrhoea clear up after a few days without treatment,

However, diarrhoea can lead to dehydration, so you should drink plenty of fluids 
ORS solution.
Antibiotics for infective causes...
