Since it has been three days without any improvement in your symptoms, you are at risk of becoming dehydrated from your diarrhea. We strongly encourage you to go to your nearest urgent care center or emergency department to undergo a complete examination and testing for the possible cause of your infection. You may need to have fluids replenished intravenously, and be treated with a course of antibiotic medication to treat this infection.
