Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you.

Infection is the most common cause for acute diarrhea. There are certain medications which can stop bowel movements abruptly. But it is not prudent to take these medications for acute infective diarrhea.

I would advise you to rice based food items, yogurt, probiotics and zinc supplements.

Let me know if I can assist you further.
Dr.Ratnakar Kini
