Hello doctor,

I have had diarrhea from the evening, and my stomach feels bloated. It does not smell good. I am taking electrolytes and do not eat anything. I started taking medications for my high BP three weeks ago. What should I do now? Shall I eat a banana?

Kindly help.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand that you have acute gastroenteritis. It may be due to food poisoning or a viral infection. I suggest you do a COVID-19 test (Coronavirus Disease-2019). Kindly monitor your temperature as your increased heart rate may be due to a fever. It is an excellent thing that you are taking electrolytes. It would be best to take 200 ml of electrolytes at a time. And if you have a fever, add Paracetamol or Acetaminophen. Taking probiotics and antacids like Pantoprazole will also be helpful.

Keep yourself well hydrated. If diarrhea persists, there are gut antibiotics like Rifaximin, which will help you to get better. Meanwhile, avoid milk and fried food.

I hope I have answered your query.

Take care.
