Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

This is likely a viral infection if you do not have any fever or blood in the stool.

Usually subsides in 2-3 days.

Over the counter remedies like loperamide and ranitidine can be tried meanwhile.

Also drink plenty of gatorade to avoid dehydration.

ER is not needed for now.

If no response in 48 hours, then you should go to the ER.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
