I there,

there are different reasons for these bowel movements: Bacterial or viral infection (reasonable, when the condition has been lasting for less than a week), infection with amoeba (in southern parts of the world) or colitis. Colitis can result from allergies or from autoimmune processes (f.e. ulcerative colitis). You should have a stool sample checked to find out more.
