What causes cold and cough along with diarrhea?

Hi, I have been sick with a head cold for about three weeks. Two of the three weeks I have had loose stools, sometimes watery, but mostly just loose. Is there something I can do to help regulate my bowel movement. I can t cough without being on the toilet. Please help.

There is no direct relation between cough and diarrhea, some viruses can cause both of them though. Your diarrhea can be due to antibiotic usage (if you have used any). Try some probiotics like enterogermina capsules. if there is no expected response in a week, consult your GP.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
