Mild Gastroenteritis? Need antibiotic therapy

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I understand your concern.

I apologise for the delayed response.

In case the loose stool is not resolved, it is advisable to take a short course of antibiotics.

I generally recommend oral tablets of ORNI O for 3 days.Please check with your physician if he shares this view and if can prescribe the same to you.

This should resolve the infection.

Further tests may be needed, only if you do not respond to standard antibiotics.

Thank you.

Hi doctor, I am 28year male and is suffering from frequent and excessive flatulence . My bowel movements are fine but the stool is smelly and loose (like a thick paste) in nature. Colonoscopy , endoscopy and ultrasound turned out to be fine. I daily go to the toilet two times in the morning but whatever the case, the flatulence starts by late afternoon. I have changed my diet quite a lot of times but have not found any improvement. I had taken Rifagut for quite some time and it is effective as long as the medicine is taken. As soon as the medication is stopped, the symptoms are back again. What could be the reason for the loose stools and for the flatulence?
