The light green colour of stools is due to bile which is not broken down due to the rapid transit of food & digestive juices.
Most acute diarrheas are due to infection in the gastrointestinal tract & are self-limited.
Please take plenty of fluids orally including oral rehydration syrup. Try a soft diet like rice, banana, apple juice & toast (BRAT diet).
If the diarrhea persists longer than 3 days or there is blood in stool or black stool or fever more than 102 F or dehydration, please consult a doctor immediately.
While Imodium or pepto may help the frequency, they do not help recovery from infectious diarrhea. They may even prolong the recovery.
