Diarrhea Issue

For quite sometime now I've had a very little amount of diarrhea come out after my normal bowl movement. This doesn't really happen a lot, and sometimes it doesn't happen at all. I also rarely get just diarrhea by itself. When I do get it, like I said it comes after my normal bowl passing. Sometimes after my normal bowl passing, I'll have to go to the bathroom only a few minutes after I was just there, and all that passes is a small amount of diarrhea, but that doesn't happen too often. It's not something I'm extremly concerned about because like I said, I rarely get diarrhea by itself. If anybody has any suggestions on what to do, or certain over-the-counter drugs I should take, or possible foods I should incorporate in my diet please post. I appreciate your time!

  • Take a good quality probiotic (acidopholus and bifidus bacterium, and others) to help with this problem. Look into food intolerances especially dairy and wheat. If your symptoms don't improve with the probiotic, then I would suggest a full stool culture to check for parasites, e coli, candida, and others. Hope this helps,DOM
