Hi, you must do a stool routine and stool culture tests at nearby pathology lab.That will try to find out what kinf of infection you have and the culture report will help treat you with respective antibiotics.If all the reports are normal i will suggest you take homoeopathy.It will help you.For any further assistance you can contact me.
