Most acute diarrheas are self-limited.

Be cautious when assessing diarrhea in a child, elderly patient, or immunosuppressed host.

Dehydration, bloody diarrhea, high fever, and diarrhea that do not respond to therapy after 48 hours are warning signs of possible complicated diarrhea.

In general, acute, uncomplicated diarrhea can be treated with oral electrolyte and fluid replacement.
