Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is likely a viral infection.

May take about a week to subside.

You can use over the counter Imodium tablets 2 tabs every 6 hours to stop diarrhea.

Please drink plenty of Gatorade to prevent dehydration.

Follow a BRAT diet for now --toast, rice, bananas, soup etc.

Fever, blood in stool should suggest bacterial infection and will warrant further evaluation.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
