Brief Answer: Start anti diarrheal medications Detailed Answer: With that frequency of diarrhea, you should start anti diarrheal medications. Also, increase water intake with salt to avoid dehydration. If symptoms continue after that or you feel excessive weakness, then you will need tests to rule out gastroenteritis and a course of antibiotics too. Hope this helps. Please ask if there are doubts.
