Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:

Frequent stools with feeling of incomplete emptying (tenesmus) suggest possible infection especially amoebiasis. I would suggest starting probiotic agents - tab VSL #3 and yoghurt. If symptoms persists, you need antibiotics like oflaxacin + tinidazole. This is a prescription medication. Your local doctor can prescribe it.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.
