Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Loose , but no diarrria. No abominable pain or swelling .
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Is it something in my diet? I am not eating much in salads
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 3 months ago

This is probably a viral gastroenteritis that will run its course in a few more days

For now I suggest oral probiotics and a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water twice a day

But if this continues beyond a few more days you need to get a stool culture to check for E coli, salmonella or C diff since if that's positive you'll need a course of oral antibiotics from your doctor

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
