A:   Thank you for writing to us.

You could be having irritable diarrhea which will go away with time or you could be having infective diarrhea. For infective diarrhea which is painful and very watery, you will need antibiotics. See a Doctor for these.

You can take tablet Pepto-Bismol 20 ml, 3 times a day to help you relieve the problems you are having. Hope this helps you.
