if the stool is positive for occult blood and pus cells then it is suggestive of some infection.So try to give the medicines prescribed by the doctor.
Loose stools following viral infection will be more watery and in this case no medicine is necessary other than giving only enough fluids with oral electrolytes.The right food at this time will be some bland food easily digestible and plenty of fluids.All the best
