Ho there,

I am Dr. Hoellering and pleased to help you with your question.

It happens now and then that a gastrointestinal infection stays a little bit longer. That depends o the underlying virus or bacteria.

Most important is diet, so please stick to tea, white bread and water. Not more until you are better!You will get Loperamide in your pharmacy and may take it unless you have no underlying bowel conditions.

Please see you doctor when you experience fever, mucous or blood on your stools. Go there also when you still are not better after 24 hours with diet.

Good luck!
