Hello!

It sounds that you probably have a case of gastroenteritis ..

These are more commoly viral type infections ...

Try Pepto Bismol > one dose after each loose stool up to 7 doses per day up to 5 days ...

Stick to a light and bland diet -- plenty of fluids and salts -- Gatorade / soups / potato chips / crackers would be helpful

You need to take steps to avoid dehydration ...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Anthony Bray MD
