Doctor :   Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you. It seems you have developed Acute Infective Diarrhea. Usually i t responds to treatment with in 5 days of antibiotics like Ofloxacin and Ornidazole. I also add a combination of Pantoprazole and Domperidone to my patients. Probiotics containing Lactobacillus helps a lot. Maintain proper hydration. Once you recover from acute infection, your digestive system will start working normally. I hope it helps. Stay Healthy
