Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

We understand your concern regarding your father is having diarrhea and vomiting with a black watery content. We will try our best to assist you in this issue.

Black vomiting could be related to bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract due to ulcer or injury and this need a prompt investigation.

The diarrhea experienced by him is multifactorial and it could be due to irritation or ongoing infection. Some of the common causes of diarrhea are:

  • Gastroenteritis
  • Typhoid fever
  • Diverticulitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Inflammatory bowel disease

However, if your father develop these symptoms and signs, do not delay the visit to the doctor:

  • Having persistent vomiting
  • Abdominal pain and bloating
  • Having changes in passing stool frequency
  • Frequently having diarrhea
  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Passing black colored stool or blood stained stool

We highly suggest you to speak with our doctors online via teleconsultation so that we could assist you further and plan the next step in managing your father’s symptoms.

We hope that our answer helps you. Thank you.
