Dear customer
Welcome to and thank you for your question.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort due to diarrhoea.I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions:
The symptoms you have described of bad diarrhoea along with some discharge and bright red blood mostly on the bathroom tissue is most probably due to a condition called dysentery.
It is an infection of the intestines that causes diarrhea and stomach cramps caused by bacteria,parasites or or other organisms.Its most common causes are:Food poisoning, improper diet, and intestinal parasites or bacterial infections,Campylobacter,salmonella,shigella, E-coli food poisoning or entamoeba histolytica infection.
The most likely cause is food poisoning.
As most cases of dysentery only last for a short period of time, antibiotics are only used if dysentery does not clear up on its own.
There is nothing serious or dangerous here.It will be a good if you take tab.Imodium or tab.Loperamide.Both are available as OTC(over the counter) without prescription & will help you greatly.
So bot***** *****ne is that you just need to wait & watch your symptoms for the next few hours.Do not forget to drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration.
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 *****
