We haven t recovered even after two weeks with intermittent bouts of remmission. What are the possible causes and tests for diagnosis and treatment.

Hi, Parul,
It seems that you might have gastroenteritis due to polluted food or water.
Go for stool test to find out bacterial or amoebic infection.
Go for ofloxacillin,tinidazole combination treatment for 3-5 days.
Ok and bye.
