How to treat a diarrhea with black stools?

I have had the diarrhea for the past 20 hours or so. It has been black all sag. The last stool I past 10 minutes ago had a lot of onion looking pieces in it. As if you took a single later off an onion and broke it into slices. What is going on with me?

Hello & Welcome to HCM,

I had gone through the case and found that black stool is might be due to any kind of passive hemorrhage. Diarrhea is due to gastric infection.

So you must go for blood and stool test to find out the cause of hemorrhage and infection.

After the correct diagnosis take treatment.

Meanwhile take light food with plenty of water.

Hope my answer will be effective for you.
