This class of diarrhea is characterized by a dry oral cavity, dizziness, tiredness, headaches, dark and infrequent urine and frequent yellow bowel movements.
In cases where an excessive amount of body fluids is lost the sufferer will continually long for something to drink in addition to other signs such as fever, confusion, dull eyes and a lack of tears when crying.
A doctor should be consulted if the signs last longer than four days and include blood in the feces, an achy rectum and a very high body temperature.
