I've iust googled, it's the worst case of diarreah I've seen, it is PURE liquid

Your doctor or the lab will give you a small container to collect your stool (poo) and deposit in the lab for examination to rule out if this is due to parasites or bacteria and if there is blood in it or not.Pure liquid means you must be seen ASAP as this kind of diarrhea may cause dehydration.I certainly think that you ate something in Singapore that caused this.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end.Regards
