The 2 weeks diarrhea sounds veryimely to be due to a gastroenteritis. This may be a cmviral infection as common cause. Often the stomach and lower GI tract may have irritation at the same time frame.
I would try Pepto Bismol -- one dose after each loose stool for 5 days---- this usually helps diarrhea and helps as a general anti-micobial
The stomach may be a bit irritated and may benefit to reduce the stomach acid with over the counter Nexium or Prilosec daily for a couple of weeks
I hope that this helps. Let me know if you have further questions. If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards,
