Your symptoms sounds like bacterial, viral or parasitic infection
. Chances of being viral are less, since it mostly subsides on it's own in a week. Your doctor would have given an epmpiric antibiotic Cipro
thinking it as bacterial infection.
If you do not want to take it, get a stool test
for ova, parasite, culture and sensitivity.
On the other hand, as you have loose stools from more than a week, you might have got dehydrated and would have lost electrolytes. So, you may need fluid replacement as early as possible since it may be serious.
