Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. No need to fasting in your case.

You are having acute colitis.

The causes can be;viral, bacterial or amoebic
Parasitic colitis

So to investigate furor stool routine micro examination has to be done

Antibiotic like Ofloxacin plus Ornidazole can be prescribed for that

Avoid excess spicy foods

Semisolid diet can be taken, fruit juice more
And don't fast.

Take vital Z powder with water until diarrhea resolved

Take care

Hope this will help you

I am having diarrhea in small amounts and appears to be bloody (black). Also experiencing pain in my stomach. Do I need to go to ER or can I set up an appointment for next week after I return from my business trip? Could this be a stomach ulcer or is it likely more serious? Appetite is normal and pepto does not help.

Hi there. I ve done hCG several times, and Im on another round. I m into day 8 and I had bloody diarrhea this morning. Should I freak out, or is this just a side effect? I didn t drink as much water as I normally do yesterday and I took a water pill last night. Also, I was completely exhausted last night. Help!
