Diarrhea there are many possible causes, one of which is a bacterial infection, for example E.coli, Shigella, Salmonella, and so on. The bacteria that cause diarrhea usually enter the digestive tract through unhygienic eating patterns, for example if you do not wash your hands before eating, if you consume processed foods that are not clean, do not cover cooked food, and so on. In addition to diarrhea, bacterial infections in the digestive tract can also make you experience fever, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, dizziness, headaches, muscle and joint pain, and also appear a variety of other complaints.
Handling of diarrhea caused by bacterial infections is mainly done by giving antibiotics to eradicate the bacteria that causes diarrhea. In addition, if the diarrhea that occurs is very massive, it can also be considered giving anti-diarrhea medication. Other treatments can also be given according to symptoms that arise.
Discomfort in the stomach that you are still experiencing until now could be a sign of a bacterial infection that has not been resolved properly. It could also, this discomfort occurs due to other causes, for example increased stomach acid. This condition can also make your stomach become bloated, like, swollen as you feel. Some other conditions besides bacterial infections can also cause diarrhea, including viral or parasitic infections, food poisoning, intolerance or malabsorption, intestinal inflammation, irritable bowel syndrome, and so on. If this condition turns out to have caused your diarrhea before, then surely further treatment is needed so that diarrhea and complaints in your stomach improve.
If your diarrhea has improved, it means that your condition has actually improved. It's just that, it takes time for the digestive tract that had been infected by bacteria to be able to recover as before.
