Dear Vinay, hello.
Frequent eating in unhygeinic condition can result in colitis / amoebiasis. You are taking correct medication which covers both the above condition. You can add probiotic like Lactobacillus combination. This will also be of some help. If the problem is persisting, have a investigation of your stool done.
Take the antibiotic medication for 5 - 7 days.
Always take precaution while eating outside. Atleast try taking pure filtered water with you whenever you go outside.
Hope this is helpful.
