I am entering my 3rd wk of sporatic watery stool.
Get stool tested. Take ORS
Thanks for using the Ask a Doctor service.
Diarrhea could be due to contaminated hands or could be due to some gastrointestinal infections. Usually these infections are self correcting and unless there is bloody stool associated, treatment with antibiotics is not required. How ever, in this case I would insist on getting a stool microscopy and culture sensitivity test done. ORS (oral rehydration solution) is the mainstay of treament. Please be patient.
