    Hi,

    Diarrhea may be a caused by conditions including infection, psychosomatic or many others. For example there might be fever, nausea, vomiting apart from abdominal pain and diarrhea. You can try bentyl for pain relief and lomotil for diarrhea. If therer is infection it is better to avoid lomotil. You also need other medications. Please consult your doctor.

    Hi, since your diarrhea is only going on for 2 wks - it falls under the category of acute diarrheas. Acute diarrheas are usually caused by infections. Depending on the exposure risk, they vary in the type of infection. Antibiotic exposure in the last 90 days or exposure to a hospital or nursing home puts you at high risk for clostridium difficile infection. undercooked contaminated poultry can cause campylobacter jejuni. If there is blood in the stool, it could be salmonella, shigella or campylobacter. Travel history to developing countries or drinking water from the springs on hiking trips can cause parasitic infections. You need to follow up with your doctor to avoid getting dehydrated, avoiding electrolyte imbalance and kidney dysfunction besides knowing the cause and getting specific treatment.
