Thank you for the replies.
Okay,as she is still having the diarrhea & pain in abdomen,you are right that this is not just the stomach flu. The stomach flu caused by viral infection generally clears within 3-5 days & she is still having the symptoms after 7 days.
Her symptoms are most likely caused by bacteria,parasites or or other organisms. .Its most common causes are:Food poisoning, improper diet, and intestinal parasites or bacterial infections,Campylobacter,Salmonella,shigell, E-coli food poisoning,entamoeba histolytica.
You need following tests:
-Stool culture & sensitivity test
She needs to be prescribed with antibiotics accordingly to eradicate the infection.Her symptoms are not related to stomach ulcer.
Following will help her greatly:
-Tab.Acetaminophen for relief from abdominal pain & cramps
- Take tab. Loperamide to stop the diarrhea & loose stools.
Both these medications are available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help her greatly.
So my best advise for you is to please make an early appointment with her doctor to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying causative organism & then treatment like antibiotics will be done accordingly.She should drink plenty of water & fluids to avoid dehydration.
Hope this helped.
