What is the treatment for rashes which occurred after diarrhea?

I have been having red spots on my arms, average size of an inch in diameter. They start with an itch. And typically are gone within a day, only to be replaced with similar spots ans symptoms in other places, again mostly on my arms, but a few on my torso as well. Not sure whether related, I had a bout of diarrhea last Wednesday, and ever since, have noticed reduced appetite. The diarrhea is gone now, but there is a bit more bloating than usual and still reduced appetite. Rings a bell? Thank you.

I have gone through your complaints and it seems to be an urticarial rash.
It can occur secondary to any infection in the body like diarrhoea in your case.

I would recommend you to take antihistaminic like tablet Cetirizine once daily for a few days.

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

Take care

There seem to be a change in my bowel movement. It occurs often after I eat. I get the growling and then I have to go. Lately it has been in the form of diarrhea. I haven t change my eating habits or my diet. It just seem to occur more frequent. What are some of the possibilities that could be causing this?

I believe I ve caught a stomach bug as I have had diarrhea on and off for 5 days. I ve got a lot of gas in my abdomen that seems to spread to my chest, left, center and sometimes right. Sometimes I get tiny, very slight pulls on my left side that last from 1-2 minutes (these occurred before the stomach bug and might be from lifting my boys up to the basketball hoop to dunk as I ve had this sensation a couple years ago after doing that exact same thing). I have no problems breathing, no sharp pains, just very bad gas and stomach. Can a stomach bug cause these symptoms?
