Loose motions, contractions. On zanocin. Further?

For last 2 months I am having lose motions frequently and feel very uncomfortable when I move out of the house because you never know when you have to go the toilet.After lunch or food intake I face this problem from last 1.5 months.I had taken some medicine like Zanocin for about 5 days and was okay for about a week but again the occasional diarrhea started, I ALWAYS HAVE feeling that i need to go to the toilet. It is really bothering me.I had travelled by train and contracted somekind of infection which just wouldn t go.Please tell me something about my food intake discipline - i enjoy eating rich and spicy food and drink normal water.

Hope you are doing good. Loose Motion could be viral or bacterial. Viral loose motion have specific incubation period and wont respond to antibiotics like zanocin or any. while your loose motion will respond to antibiotics if it bacterial. you should proper medicine for few days like.

Probitics ( with different trade names amybact , gutcare , smecta etc)
ORS ( Hi-light R etc )
and you can add Zanocin.
You should avoid spicy oily food for few days. Eat soft diet use yougurt , fruits like banana etc. you should also do go through few lab investigations like stool culture , Serum Electrolytes . Keey an close eye on your hydration level in case of dehydration visit near by hospital for re-hydration.

I hope have answered your query, feel free to ask if you have any query. wish you good health. Regards
