Suggest treatment for diarrhea

I ate some food last week in my school's dining hall and It gave me diarrhea. I thought that it was just because of the mixtures of things that I ate. I had diarrhea for 2 days or so. But,my stomach has been upset since then, and that's been for about a week now. This morning I went to the bathroom and my stool had dark spots in it,they almost look black. The stool was soft. I feel nauseous,a little dizzy, my stomach hurts, and I have a headache. Can someone help me,please?

I am a 23 year old female. 5'6" & a 1/2. I'm about 155 pounds.
Medical History
I have pollen allergies. I've had inconsistent periods since I began them. I am sexually active,but monogamous. My family has a history of heart conditions. On the other side of my family,there's a history of breast cancer. My maternal grandmother recently passed from it. At age 17 I was thought to have had a heartattack,due to stress. I tend to get stressed a lot. I have a healthy appetite. I don't use drugs,smoke,etc.

Hi. My son is 4 years old. He s having soft to watery stool and stomach ache for 4 days now.

There s only 3 vials left but still having diarrhea and the urge to defecate is still high although i can see the improvement on the consistency of the stool now. I also gave him pedialyte for rehydration. Should i shift to a different medication now? What can you suggest?

I have a boil under my breast (where band of bra sits). I went to the doctor last week (7 days ago) & was prescribed a 14 day antibiotic. She said the boil would drain by itself & my body would absorb puss. The boil is still very painful & now along the side of my breast, moving away from the boil, it is becoming pink and tender. Like the infection/ puss is moving?? (about a 4 to 5 inch area of breast) Just wondering if this is normal or if I should go back to the doctor. (I am also doing hot packs a few times a day & I had to get a topical pain reliever). Thank you.
