Ask the doc­tor

The Citizen (KZN) - - CITY - Dear doc­tor, I have a con­stant runny stom­ach and I’m on an­tibi­otics. But the prob­lem keeps re­turn­ing. I have had tests and noth­ing has been found. What do I do?

Please stop tak­ing an­tibi­otics. They might be con­tribut­ing to the im­bal­ance in your stom­ach and caus­ing the di­ar­rhoea to be pro­longed. There are many other causes to di­ar­rhoea that might need to be in­ves­ti­gated. Please ask your doc­tor to test your stools for other pos­si­ble causes. Some­times there could be chronic ill­nesses or is­sues around men­tal health.
