Hello Keumala, thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
Basically diarrhea is a normal reflex of the body in response to an infection that enters the digestive tract, where the infection can result from the presence of viruses, parasites or bacteria entering the digestive tract. Diarrhea usually results in someone wanting to defecate frequently, with a consistency of watery stool or more water content than dung waste. However, if diarrhea is accompanied by blood or mucus, this condition is called dysentery. Usually this condition will last for 3 to 7 days, accompanied by symptoms such as stomach cramps, nausea and vomiting, and fever in the body.
The treatment given by officers and doctors at the puskesmas is actually in accordance with the conditions and complaints that you feel at the beginning, but after time, it turns out that additional symptoms begin to appear, so you should immediately consult a doctor again in order to get treatment according to the cause from dysentery that you experience and also adjusted to the circumstances that exist in your body now.
While before you check back to the doctor, you can still continue the medication given from the health center and try to always meet the needs of fluids for your body, so that you can avoid the dehydration conditions that can arise at any time because the diarrhea has not improved. Apart from that you can do simple things at home like:
Get plenty of rest keep your body's fluid intake with plenty of drinks. Avoid consuming fizzy drinks or fruit juices. Avoid heavy, fatty and spicy foods. Try to eat solid and light food even in small portions and don't forget to always wash your hands well before and after eating. after doing all of the above, but your body feels increasingly weak, cold sweat, accompanied by severe nausea and vomiting, and high fever, then immediately ask someone else to contact an ambulance to take you to immediately get the right treatment in the hospital.
