Prevent Illnesses Spread by Diarrhea

Diarrhea can spread illnesses like Shigellosis.  Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by bacteria called Shigella. If the infected person has not washed his/her hands well after going to the bathroom or changing diapers, then their hands can be contaminated and the infection can spread to others. Sexual activity can also be a cause of the illness spreading.
