  • First of all.... make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Having prolonged diarrhea can leave you dehydrated.
    Are you eating anything during this time? Try to avoid orange and red colored foods.
    Call dr if it keeps up.

  • Food poisoning can cause bloody stools. Can you give your primary's office a quick call to get some advice?

  • You can drink anything the tastes good. A lot of practioners no longer recommend food and drink restrictions for diarrhea and vomitting unless it is about limiting the cause.
