C. Difficle: This is perfectly normal. You need to be patient. This is a very hard infection to get control over.

See below: The diarrhea usually improvs after 3-4 days of treatment but you need to complete the full 14 day treatment course. I would also recommend probiotic treatment with vsl#3 and florastor 1 capsule of each 2 time a day for 30 days. Note there is a 25% relase rate that necessitates retreatment.
