  • they would probably put you on antibiotics and possibly other medications to help with the symptoms.

  • It really depends on the type of bacteria or virus. Your bowels are full of both harmless and potentially harmful bacteria. Without knowing a diagnosis, symptoms, or what led to the infection it's hard to say. There are also a lot of viruses that can affect the bowels too so if it's a viral thing taking antibiotics will only kill the good bacteria leaving an open door for the bad bacteria to take over. C. diff is a VERY common infection caused by overuse or misuse of antibiotics and it's getting increasingly difficult to treat.

  • Go to your local healthfood store & get some probiotics. The effective ones are kept under refridgeration. Tell the staff you need something to fight an intestinal bacteria infection & they will help you get the right stuff. Some other supplements, like golden seal will help boost your immune system. Good Luck!
