Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for your question.
I do understand your pain and discomfort.
As per your history is concerned please follow:-
1)As you have loose motions take plenty of water if required take [ORS] solution which is a non -prescription drugs after each bowel motion.If severe diarrhea present take IV saline drips at hospital or health centers.
2)Take probiotics lactobacillus[prescription not required] in capsules twice a day to normalize bacterial flora .
3)If you were my patient, i would treat you with antibiotic cefixime and metronidazole
[Both are prescription drugs,so you need a doctors prescription for it]
4)Take BRAT diet plan[bananas, rice, applesauce, toast] and gradually introduce solids
5)Follow me with stool [RE/ME] report with ESR & CRP
I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to write to me.
Wishing you all the best.
Thanks
