Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

It sounds like you've developed a bad case of traveler's diarrhea.

You will need to be prescribed antibiotics to treat this infection rapidly to avoid worsening symptoms and dehydration.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
