Doctor

A:   Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
We are here to help you.

It seems you have developed Acute Infective Diarrhea/ Acute Gastro-Enteritis.
I suppose, you are not passing any bloody stools.
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.
Probiotics containing Lactobacillus helps a lot.
Maintain proper hydration.
Take Oral Rehydration syrup (ORS) for the purpose of re-hydration.

I hope it helps.
Stay Healthy
