Brief Answer:
will settle soon

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
If the stool for blood is negative now, no need to worry.
The infection is no longer severe. It has responded very well to the medicines your doctor has prescribed.
But it may take few more days for stools to settle . For fever continue the medicines you are giving currently.
Do give ORS frequently.
Ensure urine output atleast 6 times daily.

I have one question from your answer, as far as I know babies less then 6 month old are not give ORS. Only breast feeding is recomended, isnt it?
Answered by Dr. Arun 14 minutes later
Brief Answer:
depends on stool freq and volume

Detailed Answer:
If stool volume and freq is less , you can manage with breastfeeding. If it is more , ors will be helpful to prevent dehydration. It is safe and recommended.

I m staying outside in college hostel for last 2 months and the food is very spicy here. From last 3-4 weeks i m suffering from loose motion continuously, sometimes less and sometimes very acute with passing of mucus and black loose stool. After consultation with my local physician over phone, i m taking ofloxacin-200mg and ornadizole-500mg combined tablet over the last 15 days or so once daily after dinner, but without much improvement. Especially when the medicine is skipped someday, then it gets worse. I m not having any stomach pain but sometimes gas formation is there, especially at early morning. Can you please help.
