Bowel Movement
Hi Doctor.

I have been having a runny tummy since Monday. And its very green. What could be the cause of this? Should I be cocerned?

Thank you.

Hallo Astound
Yes you probably have infective diarrhoea - see if you can catch a sample in a potty or something ( about 10ml is enough) and put it in a clean small bottle with a tight fitting lid in a plastic bag to take with to the doctor. You probably need antibiotics and the doctor must send the sample to the lab.
