Brief Answer: stool examination Detailed Answer: I think an antibiotic course may be needed. However I would suggest a stool examination prior to that. Meanwhile make sure you are on plenty of fluids. Remember, for every loosestool episode, you should replenish at least 200 ml of fluid. Meanwhile an antidiarrhoeal like racedrotil may help you to get dehydrated. Please let me know the reports of stool examination, The report should be available in 1-2 days Best of luck Dr Mittal
