hello, dysentry means that should be blood in the stool. If that is the case, then it is due to an infective cause. She will require antibiotics for a while. You will need a prescription for that. If there is no blood and only diarrhea, then she before suggesting antibiotics, i can recommend probiotics. Cap bifilac twice daily for 7days. She can start the probiotics already while waiting to see her doctor. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. A stool examinatiin sould also be done.
