Solution To Overcome Prolonged Diarrhea After Eating Spicy?
Good afternoon, I have diarrhea from yesterday due to the food being too spicy. Until now I still have diarrhea. Last night I had a fever. Now I feel dehydrated. What should I do to overcome it, while I am fasting
Hello, milaadenia, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Diarrhea is a condition where the frequency of bowel movements is more frequent than usual and has a consistency of being soft or watery. The causes of diarrhea can vary, it can be due to infection (viruses, bacteria, parasites), food allergies, food poisoning, deficiency of certain enzymes that cause disturbances in digesting food, etc. The fastest complication that can occur due to diarrhea is dehydration. Dehydration is a condition of lack of fluids in the body, characterized by weakness, thirst, skin wrinkles, increased pulse, decreased blood pressure, etc.
Treatment of diarrhea according to the cause, it is necessary to have an interview, direct examination by a doctor, as well as supporting examinations such as fecal analysis and complete blood count. In addition, it is important for people with diarrhea to prevent dehydration by drinking ORS every time they have loose bowel movements and keep eating food and drinks as usual (of course, those that are not spicy, not sour, and which are clean and cooked) If in this way you are still weak and thirsty, you should immediately go to the doctor to be checked whether you need further help (such as giving fluids through an IV) or not.
For now, if you still have diarrhea and fever, you should not fast just yet as this can worsen dehydration. Fever can be caused by an infection or as a reaction to dehydration that may have happened to you. Check with your doctor immediately.
So, hopefully this is useful.
