I've been taking two antibiotics... I knew it was making my stools loose, but this is ridiculous! I'm afraid to fart because I crapped myself twice yesterday morning. I have gone to the bathroom around 7 times in the last 2 hours and it's like liquid poop. My butt hurts.... what can I do?

Probiotics will help a lot. If you want to eat yogurt instead just make sure there's at least two hours between when tpu take your antibiotic and eat the yogurt. Dairy plus antibiotics isn't a good combo together, so definitely space them out. If you choose to just do probiotics (they have pill and gummy and powder forms) you can take it whenever.

Take some extra clothes just in case.

Also eat stuff like cream of wheat, applesauce, and bananas. It'll help harden up stools.

I hope you are feeling better! My doctor had told me to stop taking my antibiotics and prescribed others when I got chronic diarrhea.
