Runny Stomach

I have had diarrhae for over a week now?

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

It is possible that you have a bacterial infection of the gut. I therefore, recommend that you consult your GP for a prescription of an antibiotic to treat the infection, as well as a probiotic to alleviate your symptoms. Your GP should also do a stool MCS.

You can also take Imodium and Bascopan in the interim to alleviate the symptoms.

Kind regards
