Doctor: Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you.You seem to be suffering from Infective Diarrhea. I would advise you to get an Ultrasound abdomen and Stool examination to rule out any evidence of infection.Infective Diarrhea responds to treatment within 5 days of antibiotics like Ofloxacin and Ornidazole. I also add a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone to my patients. You should also take Probiotics containing Lactobacillus which helps a lot. You should also maintain proper hydration. You can take Oral Rehydration syrup (ORS) for the purpose of re-hydration.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy
