Hi Som,

This seems like a non-specific intestinal colitis. The treatment is symptomatic. You need to alter your eating habits and go into a bland diet with lots of fruits and vegetable salads.

If these symptoms continue over the next few months, you may need to be assessed by a colonscopy to rule out inflammatory bowel disease.

De-stress yourself as much as you can. Take probiotics like Yoghurt daily.

Wish you speedy recovery.
