Thank you for your query on healthcare magic.
Diarrhea may be antibiotic associated.
Antibiotics cause elimination of protective gut bacteria which leads to loose stools.
Oral probiotic like lactobacillus or saccharomyces scahets can be taken to decrease loose stools.
Consult the doctor for probiotic prescription.
Take sips of oral rehydration to maintain hydration.
Hope I have answered your query.
