is his stool mostly water or mostly stool??

he could have a bowel infection or colitis or bowel allergy to food like gluten allergy or milk allergy causing his diarrhea

he needs to see a doctor to get an evaluation and testing of his stool.

how old is he?

he may need a colonoscopy to look on the inside of his colon to see why he is having diarrhea.
