diet it self can manage loose stools. use more water, tendercocunut, rice gangi, electral or glucose powder. so that you dont get tiredness. even fruit juices are also very good.

I suffered from loosemotions 10 days before. It continued for 3-4 days. I took medicine and suitable diet for that. But then I started suffering from acidity. On taking suitable medicine and diet for that, loose motions started again. So now I am from both. What should I do? Which medicines can I take? What type of diet I should follow?

I ve had diarrhea now for at least 6 days and still on-going. I ve also had stomache cramps for about the same length of time too. I came on my period Sunday. Which I thought that s what the stomache cramps resulted to. But I ve never had them this bad before. The stomache cramps have had me to the floor in absolute agony. I ve also been having heart burn and feeling ever so sick and faint, but never actually done so. Before all of this, I have had a water infection. Which lasted for about 10. Then the diarrhea started. Is this normal? Not sure why all this is happening. Do you have any idea? (I am going through a lot of stress at the moment too, if that helps in any way?) Kind regards, Louise.

My daughter had been sick for a while. Like a month ago she had massive diarrhea that lasted a week. My fiancé and I thought it was due to the teething. It went away but the week after she got fever, we took her to her pediatrician and she said she would be fine and gave us medicine, but she did not know what caused the fever. The fever did go away for a week and then it came back, that time we took her to the ER and they didn’t figure what caused the fever, they though it was viral but nothing for sure. It’s been a week since we took her to the ER and last night she started a fever again. My question is why does the fever come back every week or two? What I do?
