Hi welcome to health care magic forum,
It is due to the antibiotic you have taken, besides cure it has also killed the gut flora,that is why you are getting diarrhea, best way to treat the diarrhea is to take lacto-bacillus sachet 3-4 times a day, or you can also drink plenty of curd 3-4 times a day to cure the condition.


Regards,
Thanks.
