Hi Doctor, I have been suffering with loose motions since yesterday evening with heavy vomiting in the night. Also, i developed itching and rashes on the entire body, after which i took 'Avil' which is a common anti-allergic medicine. It was really late into the night I could put myself to rest. I just woke up and currently normal, but wud know better in the next two hours. The rashes are not there anymire but only partial redness I am in the middle of long vacations and unsure of my condition to cancel and head back home or take some medication and rest.
