Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome.
I have gone through your query.

Ofloxacin can be used in infective cases.
I would like to know when you are facing this problem?
How many episodes you had?
How is the consistency?

Presently, I would suggest you to take probiotics like sporolac or ecobion, it will be beneficial. It is important to maintain good hydration, so I would suggest you to use oral rehydration solution. Try to avoid spicy food, alcohol and smoking. Avoid meat and add more vegetables to diet. Add curd to your diet.

Kindly try this measures and also get back to us with additional information.

This provisional advice provided by me is based entirely on the input provided to me. I would suggest examination by the doctor.

I hope this suggestion might be of some help to you.
Take care.
