Yes: C.Diff is contagious and spreads easily if you do not was your hands properly after contact with a patient who is currently infected. If your symptoms do not resolve, or get worse, you should see your primary care doctor as soon as possible to have your stool tested and receive appropriate medicine. If you can't see your pcp soon, you should go to an ER for eval.
