Default Diarrhea

My hamster has changed living locations and in the colder climate developed diarrhea. It's been a few days. What can I do to to help her? She's back in the warmer climate now. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If she's had diarrhoea for a few days I would take her to the vet.
How extreme was the change & what else changed for her? Unless it was a really extreme change in temperature & she got too cold & stressed by it it would seem unlikely that the cold would have caused her symptoms.
Has she had any change in diet?

Yes her diet changed and I fed her some carrots. It wasn't too extreme a weather change but definitely colder. Do you think she needs antibiotics?

How did you change her diet? If you just switched from one food to another that could have caused a problem, if you change mixes then it should always be done gradually mixes the old with the new, just adding a little of the new & increasing the amount of the new food over a week or more depending on how different the mix is.
Veg should be introduced gradually too, just a tiny piece once every few days then you can slowly build up to daily.
Diarrhoea is serious for hams & if she still has it then I would take her to the vet.
