Thanks for the query

Greenish coloured stools is indicative of infective diarrhea. I suggest you to approach a general physician for a stool routine to rule it out. I also advice your boyfriend the following

1. Keep him well hydrated with lots of fluids, both diarrhea and the heat would have caused severe dehydration. Tingling in the nose and face is sign of dehydration
2. Avoid caffeine, milk and milk products. Abstain from smoking and alcohol
3. Combination antibiotic like Ciprofloxacin with tinidazole twice daily for 5 days would be an ideal antibiotic for him, it can be started after sending the stool routine

I hope I was of help
