Pale White Liquid Stools?
Sorry doctor I want to ask .. I’ve had diarrhea from Sunday, November 11, 2018 until now, normal yellow loose stools, but in the afternoon I saw pale white stools. Is this cholera or normal diarrhea? Thanks doctor
Cholera is diarrhea caused by infection with Vibrio cholerae bacteria. Cholera infection is transmitted from water contaminated by feces of cholera sufferers, from unhygienic food, not washing hands before eating, and so on. Cholera is usually characterized by the following symptoms:
Liquid diarrhea with large volumes and continuously. Diarrhea that comes out like rice washing water, feces are generally not visible anymore. Abdominal pain Nausea and vomiting that much Dehydration (body lack of fluids) very quickly appears in patients with cholera because the volume of diarrhea that comes out a lot If dehydration in diarrhea is not treated properly, can result in death. If you experience complaints of weakness, can not eat and drink at all, reduced urination or no urination at all, you should immediately consult a doctor. Management of cholera is done by rehydration of fluids using ORS or using an IV if the patient cannot drink at all. Patients are also given antibiotics, as well as other medicines to reduce the symptoms of cholera.
Always keep your home environment clean. Be sure to wash your hands after using the toilet, before eating, before preparing and serving food. Avoid consumption of foods that are not hygienic or drinking water that is not cooked.
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
