You : You may be dealing with a bacterial infectious process. For this you will need antibiotics. Your doctor may want to do some tests of your stool to check for certain pathogens prior to treatment. In the meantime maintain hydration and eat a bland diet until you improve. I hope you are better soon.

Varies: After a week get a medical consult with bloodwork to see if your blood electrolytes are off due to deydration, and possible bacterial cultures to rule out bacterial food poisoning.
