Hi and thanks for the query,

A formal clinical examination is needed. A notion of any fever and taking of drugs against fever must be known. This guides towards thinking of an infectious or non infectious origin of symptoms. A complete blood count, measuring markers of i nflammation and stool examination and cultures could be very useful.

Irregular bowel movement evaluation shall need to know if this just started or has been going on for a long time. Changes in diet could affect bowel movements. Vegetable rich diets, fruit rich diets , enough drinking of fluids and exercise could be of help.

I suggest you consult your primary care physician for a complete clinical review.

Thanks and kind regards,

Bain LE, MD.
