Loose and smelly stool for a year now

My stool has been loose for more than a year now. Smelly, loose and gassy. Some times I will notice itching anus which i think is due to leakages. First doctor says I ve IBS and encouraged me to jog constantly. But each time I jog or do any sweating physical execise I will develop soar throat- stuffy and running noose-cough. Went to another doctor blood tests shows that I ve iron defficiency, low immune. Plz what do yo think.

Do a test for parasites and a test for lactose & gluten intolerance.

I had a hell of a time convincing an MD that my intestinal friend that accompanied me on my return from central America was giardia. Let it go on long enough and you will lose a lot of weight, because the critters are eating all the fat in your diet. It's easy to cure, but all the scripts for it require a prescription.
