Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms seem to be indicative of an acute gastro-enteritis. This can in turn be caused due to bacterial, viral or parasitic infections or food poisoning. Most diarrheas are self limiting and may not need specific medication, except replenishment of the lost water and salts. I would suggest that you take plenty of fluids and ORS (Oral Rehydration Solution), like Electral. Avoid oily or spicy foods for a few days. If you develop high fever or chills or have blood / mucous in your stools, then you may need to see a doctor for antibiotic medication.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
