Hi there ...

This seems to be stomach flu and in this condition you should not stop Diarrhea as it will prevent excretion of germs and will prolong illness , it would be ideal for you to just maintain good hydration with ORAL REHYDRATING SALT .

Avoid cola drinks , juices , chocolates , fatty meals .

Stomach flu takes almost 3 days to recover , anti-diarrheals will prolong it and antibiotics are not indicated .

Use Yogurt , small frequent meals , you will be ok soon .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks .
