Kindly answer the following questions to guide you further.

Hello,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

It seems to be a noninfective functional bowel problem. I suggest you maintain hydration with lots of water for the next few days.

  1. Take Vital Z or ORS (oral rehydration solution) powder with water frequently.
  2. Avoid the intake of excess spicy foods.
  3. Take Sporolac like a probiotic tablet as well.
  4. Take more fruit juice.
  5. Semisolid and Bland diet can be taken more.
  6. Avoid fasting until you recover.

If in next one or two days diarrhea not improving than stool routine micro examination, occult blood test, CBC (complete blood count) and stool culture should be done for further work up. I hope I have answered your question.

Thank you doctor,

Ok doctor, thank you for the help.
