Hello,
Dear customer

Welcome back to justanswer.com and thank you for your question.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort due to diarrhea.I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions

The symptoms of explosive diarrhea you are having can be due to a condition called gastroenteritis what you call as stomach flu. Gastroenteritis is the irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract.

Its most common causes are:Food poisoning, viral infections, food allergies, improper diet, and intestinal parasites or bacterial infections.

This diarrhea is not related with your anal sex & there is nothing serious about this.

Following will help you greatly:

-Take tab. Loperamide to stop the explosive diarrhea & loose stools.

-Take tab.Ranitidine(Zantac) 150 mg twice a day to get relief from gastric trouble/gas & relief from pressure/ discomfort under left rib cage area

-Drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration

Both of these medications are available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.

If still the symptoms persists,then you need to go to ER as & antibiotics & other medications will then be prescribed accordingly.

In general terms & usually the diarrhea gets subside with these above described medications within 24 hours.

Hope this helped.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Thank you XXXXX
Dr. Robert
