To answer your question you don’t need antibiotics right now. In most cases it’s a mild illness and symptoms clear within 3 to 4 days. So don’t worry you should feel better soon. It does not require major treatment as it subsides on its own.
Q. What should I do to feel better when I am suffering from loose motions?
A. The main line of therapy for tummy upsets/loose motions is:
Fluid replacement- This is really important as we lose lots of water and electrolytes with loose motions and/or vomiting. If we do not replace this lost water, we end up feeling fatigued and weak.
As a rough guide, drink at least 200 millilitres for each watery stool.
Instead of plain water have ORS/ELECTRAL: 1 packet to be dissolved in 1 litre of boiled and cooled water.
If you feel like vomiting, wait for 5-10 minutes and then start drinking again, but this time do it slowly. For example, take a sip every 2-3 minutes, but make sure that your total intake is the same as what is described above.
Food intake- Eat as normally as possible. Easily digestible food is better. E.g. curd-rice, moong dal khichdi, fruits. Avoid oily/spicy food.
