Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
This sounds like infectious diarrhea.
This can come from contaminated food or water.
This is an infection without doubt.
Your daughter, son and you all got the diarrhea --this suggests transmission.
This can be bacterial or parasitic infection.
Viral infection also possible to last this long sometimes
I will suggest you all to get stool tests to check for any parasitic infection which will require antibiotics.
Please contact your family doctor regarding this.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
