Hello, XXXXXXX,
Sudden onset of diarrhea could be from a number of
reeasons.
Eating contaminated food or drinks can cause food poisoning.
Poultry, egg products, bad cheese etc. can do this.
Summer time, viruses can cause diarrhea.
If you are older than 45-50 years of age, have to think about
diverticulitis or infection in one or more of the pockets on the
wall of the colon or the large bowel.
Usually, after a bout of intestinal infection, after the diarrhea
stops, still you may have the urge to go , but since there is
not much residue, there won't be much stool.
This will get better when once you start eating normal and
introduce adequate fiber in your diet.
If you also had a high fever, chills etc, I would recommend
that you see your doctor.
Hope you feel better soon.

Helo sir,
I am 29 year old I had typhoid when I was about 15 years and doctor prescribed me some tablets .I had severe fever just one day night and on the same day I was having severe itching on the glans penis and by the next day it became sores.The next day itself I again consulted the doctor and he changed the medicines.He said that might be because of allergy to sulphar or something.That sores became worst and took around two weeks to heal leaving many marks and uneven skin.What type of allergy was it?or was it a symptom of something else like any STD?Is there any way to remove that marks on the glans penis?Please help.becouse of shyness I never discussed these with a doctor
