Hi,
This seems due to antibiotic. after antibiotic medicines intestinal flora are disturbed so diarrhea take place.Another thing is that you are allergic to antibiotic which you have used leading to skin rashes.
Consult your doctor and take his opinion.A course of anti allergic like cetrizine and smoothing cream on local part will cure your problem.

Hello, Recently I made a trip to Las Vegas for 3 days. One of the days I went to a renown restaurant and ordered a steak, medium rare. Well when I bit into the steak it was much more red then I remember medium rare should be, but I finished the plate. The next morning was the trip back home, and I had a real bad stomach ache, and felt the need to vomit, but didn t vomit because I dislike doing so. I get home, nothing but Diarrhea for the next 7 days, I figured food poisoning. However, up until the 7th day of Diarrhea I started getting hives on my body. Nothing of my home routine has changed, and this is a first for any kind of hives for me. Is there a correlation of Diarrhea for 7 days and hives?

My little chihuahua has had bad diarrhea since yesterday...she was up all night and had 1 firm white stool all the other spots were brown very runny stool. The only change I have made this week is adding burts bees ointment to a rash on her belly she had been scratching and bitting at. I googled using the burts bees prior to putting it on her and it said it was safe for dogs. Last year she had the same rash and I used bag balm ointment ..they were out thats why i switched. Will she be ok?
