Listerine Diarrhoea Causes and Reviews


What is
diarrhea ?

Diarrhea is loose, watery stools (bowel movements). You have diarrhea if you have loose stools three or more times in one day. Acute diarrhea is diarrhea that lasts a short time. It is a common problem. It usually lasts about one or two days, but it may last longer. Then it goes away on its own.

Diarrhea lasting more than a few days may be a sign of a more serious problem. Chronic diarrhea -- diarrhea that lasts at least four weeks -- can be a symptom of a chronic disease. Chronic diarrhea symptoms may be continual, or they may come and go.

What causes diarrhea ?

The most common causes of diarrhea include

  • Bacteria from contaminated food or water
  • Viruses such as the flu, norovirus, or rotavirus . Rotavirus is the most common cause of acute diarrhea in children.
  • Parasites, which are tiny organisms found in contaminated food or water
  • Medicines such as antibiotics, cancer drugs, and antacids that contain magnesium
  • Food intolerances and sensitivities, which are problems digesting certain ingredients or foods. An example is lactose intolerance.
  • Diseases that affect the stomach, small intestine, or colon, such as Crohn's disease
  • Problems with how the colon functions, such as irritable bowel syndrome

Some people also get diarrhea after stomach surgery, because sometimes the surgeries can cause food to move through your digestive system more quickly.

Sometimes no cause can be found. If your diarrhea goes away within a few days, finding the cause is usually not necessary.

Who is at risk for diarrhea ?

People of all ages can get diarrhea. On average, adults In the United States have acute diarrhea once a year. Young children have it an average of twice a year.

People who visit developing countries are at risk for traveler's diarrhea. It is caused by consuming contaminated food or water.

What other symptoms might I have with diarrhea ?

Other possible symptoms of diarrhea include

  • Cramps or pain in the abdomen
  • An urgent need to use the bathroom
  • Loss of bowel control

If a virus or bacteria is the cause of your diarrhea, you may also have a fever, chills, and bloody stools.

Diarrhea can cause dehydration, which means that your body does not have enough fluid to work properly. Dehydration can be serious, especially for children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.

When should I see a doctor for diarrhea ?

Although it is usually not harmful, diarrhea can become dangerous or signal a more serious problem. Contact your health care provider if you have

  • Signs of dehydration
  • Diarrhea for more than 2 days, if you are an adult. For children, contact the provider if it lasts more than 24 hours.
  • Severe pain in your abdomen or rectum (for adults)
  • A fever of 102 degrees or higher
  • Stools containing blood or pus
  • Stools that are black and tarry

If children have diarrhea, parents or caregivers should not hesitate to call a health care provider. Diarrhea can be especially dangerous in newborns and infants.

How is the cause of diarrhea diagnosed?

To find the cause of diarrhea, your health care provider may

  • Do a physical exam
  • Ask about any medicines you are taking
  • Test your stool or blood to look for bacteria, parasites, or other signs of disease or infection
  • Ask you to stop eating certain foods to see whether your diarrhea goes away

If you have chronic diarrhea, your health care provider may perform other tests to look for signs of disease.

What are the treatments for diarrhea ?

Diarrhea is treated by replacing lost fluids and electrolytes to prevent dehydration. Depending on the cause of the problem, you may need medicines to stop the diarrhea or treat an infection.

Adults with diarrhea should drink water, fruit juices, sports drinks, sodas without caffeine, and salty broths. As your symptoms improve, you can eat soft, bland food.

Children with diarrhea should be given oral rehydration solutions to replace lost fluids and electrolytes.

Can diarrhea be prevented?

Two types of diarrhea can be prevented - rotavirus diarrhea and traveler's diarrhea. There are vaccines for rotavirus. They are given to babies in two or three doses.

You can help prevent traveler's diarrhea by being careful about what you eat and drink when you are in developing countries:

  • Use only bottled or purified water for drinking, making ice cubes, and brushing your teeth
  • If you do use tap water, boil it or use iodine tablets
  • Make sure that the cooked food you eat is fully cooked and served hot
  • Avoid unwashed or unpeeled raw fruits and vegetables

Listerine Diarrhoea Reviews

Mon, 20 May 2013

I started using Listerine and it made one of my cheaks soo sensitive, I keep getting this weird feeling its sore and scary because I cant chew on anyhthing ; ( I dont know if I should visit my gp or wait for longer to see if its gna go away. :(

Thu, 19 Jan 2012

On the first use itself i felt sme burning sensation in my mouth and the lower lip become reddened and swollen.

Wed, 25 Jan 2012

I burned my mouth so bad with Listerine Whitening Mouthwash. I rinsed my mouth out immediately with water to get all of the mouthwash out and threw the Listerine away. It really hurt. Now, I'm having issues with my mouth and it has been at least 5 weeks. I have that burned tongue feeling. I believe it caused some real damage to my mouth. My saliva seems less and my mouth gets dry. Also, it seems like the glands under the back of my tongue ot a little inflamed. Pretty scary now. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow. I'm very nervous :(

Sun, 16 Feb 2014

I used Listerine Total Care Zero a few hours ago and instantly lost my sense of taste. The inside of my mouth and tongue are now sore and very dry. I'm very uncomfortable right now and am not sure what to do to alleviate my discomort. So frustrated!

Tue, 24 Jan 2012

I have been using Listerine Total Care plus whitening for a month or more. I have recently noticed a loss of taste. I am stopping the use of this product today!

Sat, 14 Sep 2013

I've been using Listerine Whitening Pre-Brush rinse for about five days. It burns so bad in my mouth, I can only swish for about 10 seconds and then spit it out, rather than the 60 seconds the instructions recommend. Although my teeth do look a little whiter, the skin on my lips has started burning and peeling off. My lips feel sore, and are swollen and itchy. It's like after I've had a bad sunburn on my lips, but this is not a sunburn. I can just peel strips of skin off my lips. I'm not using this product anymore. Slightly whiter teeth but burns my mouth terribly. This product is too harsh!

Tue, 27 Aug 2013

My wife and I started using Listerine a month ago, thinking it would be good as a mouthwash. We both started getting ulcers at the same time. Its been 3 days since we both stopped, and the ulcers are disappearing as well. Clearly, Listerine is dangerous, too many chemicals in it. It should be taken off the shelves of all supermarkets.

Wed, 02 Apr 2014

do you feel better now ?
I have the same symptoms and I'm a bit worry

Fri, 07 Dec 2012

I'm 16 and recieved a small bottle from my dentist, I decieded to use it thinking I might like it. It hurt so bad! the taste buds on my tongue got oversized and looked like the might have popped! I woke up this morning and I can't taste anything, not salt, sugar, things spicey. NOTHING. I can only feel my food. I don't have pain anymore, but this product needs to be recalled its dangerous.
