Diarrhea Accompanied By Aches In The Hands And Skin Rashes?
Hello, I want to ask. I have diarrhea for 1 day and also aches in my hands and rashes on my skin. Is the disease caused by these symptoms? Thank you
Hello Suci, thank you for asking.
The symptoms you describe are very common symptoms in various diseases. Diarrhea that lasts for a day or several days, is generally caused by a rotavirus infection, food poisoning, or an allergy to certain types of food. Generally this type of diarrhea is not dangerous and can heal itself within a few days. Symptoms of aching body and the appearance of a rash can also be a accompanying symptom of a viral infection. You did not explain in detail what kind of rash you mean, so the possibility of the rash arising as part of a viral infection or maybe allergic.
There is no specific drug that you need to consume in acute diarrhea. The main principle to deal with diarrhea or vomiting is to maintain fluid intake. After each chapter you should drink 1 glass (200 ml) ORS or similar liquids. Beyond that, you also still have to drink according to the normal volume of water every day, which is at least 2 L per day. Limit foods that are too spicy, or too spicy and sour. Choose the type of food that is easy to digest. Get enough rest, sleep 6-8 hours a night. Do not carelessly take drugs to stop diarrhea, because the risk of side effects of these drug groups is decreased bowel movements so that a person can experience constipation or even paralytic ileus (intestinal obstruction due to intestinal obstruction stops moving altogether).
If after 3-5 days your diarrhea has not improved or actually worsened, visit the nearest doctor. Your doctor may need to check your blood and stool samples. These actions are needed to find out if there are other infections, such as bacterial, fungal, or parasitic infections.
Hopefully this answer can be useful. Regards.
