The frequency of normal bowel movements can vary significantly from person to person. Constipation is generally classified as less than 2 bowel motions in a week and associated with symptoms of straining, a feeling of incomplete evacuation and hard lumpy stools.
At some point in time we will all most likely suffer from a bout of diarrhoea. Often referred to as gastro or food poisoning, it is most commonly caused by a virus, but could also be a bacteria or parasite.
Prolonged exposure of the skin to a wet or dirty nappy and/or contact with other irritants (such as scented nappy wipes) are the main causes of nappy rash. The irritation, constant moisture and rubbing causes damage to the skin.
