Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Can you elaborate what you mean by an 'upset stomach'?
Do you have diarrhea or vomiting?
I would not worry too much. Sounds like a viral infection.
You should make sure that you should take more electrolyte rich fluids like gatorade and pedialyte.
More bananas, rice, toast.
BRAT diet is what I am talking about i.e. banana, rice, apple sauce and toast.
More details on the following weblink:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRAT_diet
A few more days at the most.
Viral infections can take up to two weeks.
So a few more days and you should be okay.
If your symptoms do not improve in the next few days then I would recommend that you should see your doctor.
Seeing a doctor because you may require an antibiotic as any diarrhea over two weeks is then most likely a bacterial diarrhea.
The most commonly prescribed drug for diarrhea is ciprofloxacin.
Diarrhea two times a day is very mild
So as far as my opinion is concerned you can wait for a few days.
Antibiotic is usually given in cases of more severe diarrhea that has lasted for more than ten to 14 days
