I am 21 years old. I have diarrhea for a week. I took multivitamins, Loperamide, and sodium ascorbate daily. I was told that diarrhea is one of the symptoms of COVID-19. Kindly suggest.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I understand your concern. Diarrhea can be a symptom of COVID-19 (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2). You have an unlikely cause to have it as your respiratory rate is in reference range and your body temperature is low indicating a sign of undernutrition. I suggest you consult a doctor for doing some investigations and stool culture. You can take Flea seeds and Probiotics instead of Loperamide. Drink enough water. Take enough salt and minerals. It is good to eat rice with slightly salted yogurt and drink black tea with sugar and without milk.
