    Suggest treatment for persistent loose stool and stomach pain

Posted on Mon, 14 Aug 2017 in Digestion and Bowels
Question: Thanks--I have had loose stools/diarrhea for two weeks. I have not had a stomach ache for about a week--however, I am so careful as to what I eat and have had two glasses of alcohol in 1.5 weeks. I was bitten by a cat Friday night and went to Urgent Care on Saturday (yesterday) and am on an antibiotic. Not sure what is wrong.....

Brief Answer:
How often do you stool?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear bout this loose stool. To understand more, I will like to know how many times in a day you go to the toilet to stool. Also, I will like to know what changes you have incorporated in your diet. With no other symptoms of abdominal pain, fever or bloody stools, it is most likely that this is related to diet. Before making the final call and offering suggestions, let me hear from you.
