Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
I am sorry you have diarrhea.
have you tried anti-diarrhea medications like Imodium or prescription Lomotil to fight the diarrhea?
you may need to stop milk and gluten foods to help your diarrhea improve
are you having water for stools?
or just soft stools? different people have different ideas of what "diarrhea" is
how old are you?
have you tried to take two imodium pills up to 8 a day to help stop your diarrhea?
you should talk to your doctor about Lomotil
if your stools are soft stools now, that is better than watery stools and means you are getting better.
eating bananas can help some people tighten up their stools
stop milk and gluten and see if that helps too.
you could have IBS or irritable bowel syndrome
soft stool is usually not dangerous and usually doesn't lead to dehydration like watery stool can.
