Constant bowel

Hi! I am constantly going to the toilet and withdrawing a liquid light clay colored stool. Anything i eat or drink it comes out in either through vomit or in the toilet. The doctor only says its a virus but cant exactly tell me what particular virus and he gave me medicine to take. Can you tell me what can be the problem? I hardly eat now and feel dehydrated

Hi there,
Clay colored usually indicate some problem with the liver or gall bladder.Hepatitis, biliary cirrhosis, alcoholic hepatitis all can lead to clay colored stools. Frequent watery stools with vomiting can be due to viruses like rotavirus, adenovirus, etc.The symptoms of viral gastroenteritis can mimic diarrhea caused by Salmonella species or Escherichia coli or parasites like  Giardia lamblia. A clinical examination and investigations like blood counts, liver function tests and stool examination may be done. The most important of treating viral gastroenteritis is to prevent severe loss of fluids and prevent developing dehydration. Since you are persistently vomiting you may need intravenous fluids. Seek medical help as soon as possible. Take care and regards!
