Hi Silvia,
Yes it is diarrhea only.
In a 8 month old baby, diarrhea is most often due to viral infections and are self limiting. They last for a about a week.
But since your baby is having diarrhea for more than 3 weeks weeks, I would advice you to get her stool analysis done.
Diarrhea in babies can cause dehydration. The following should be done -
1. Give her enough fluids including pedialyte
2. Give her yogust
3. Give her probiotic supplements
I hope that answers your question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
