How do you stop diarrhea?

Most bouts of diarrhea do not require treatment. However, some doctors may supply you with antibiotics or oral rehydration solutions depending on the cause of the diarrhea. Home care guidelines include drinking plenty of water, getting enough rest, and watching for any serious symptoms such as dehydration or blood in the stool. The biggest concern is dehydration as massive amounts of fluids can move out the GI tract with severe diarrhea.
