This can be caused by foot poisoning or intestinal infection or food allergy and mal absorption

If you can provide me more information like your age and relevant medical history
Are you having fever or acid reflux
how's your appetite

In my opinion you should take plenty of fluids including ORS to counter dehydration and electrolytic imbalances
Maintain good hygiene
wash your hand properly before taking food

You may require a course of antibiotics under supervision of your doctor after a stool test.

Please revert back to me with details so that I will be bal to tell you more precisely
wish you good health

I get severe diarrhea from swallowing my boyfriends semen. It takes about two hours and then my stomach just gives up. I have no pain and I don t feel nauseous. But the diarrhea is quite bad. It has happened several times now. And I find on the internet that I am not the only one. But why is this? Why does it happen?

My 5 yr old son has had diarrea all day today. He vomited once. He was running a fever earlier of 101.3. I gave him tylenol. It came down. It is now the middle of the night and he is still nauseas. Put him in the shower for 25 min because he wanted to. Just go him out. His forehead is not hot but the rest of his body is burning up. Very hot. Just gave him more tylenol. His temp is 101. He is still complaining of his lower back both sides and his sides and lower front abdomen hurting him. What should I do??
