Thanks for the query.

If there was just one episode of watery stools, its probably due to an infection. The source could be food related especially when associated with the cramps.

If these loose motions continue, then you will need a course of antibiotics.

A stool culture test is also required to confirm the cause.

Prolonged diarrhea can indicate a underlying gastrointestinal system pathology. It could be due to fever or blood in stools, then you need to be evaluated.

Avoid a high fatty diet.

Hope this answers your query.

I will be available for followup queries if any.
