Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

There can be a gastrointestinal infection or inflammation.
In most cases it is viral.
It usually passes off in 3-5 days.
Sometimes, bacterial or parasitic infection can be there.
A stool test, blood work would help to plan treatment.
Meanwhile, please try to keep good hydration.
Take plenty of fluid, oral rehydration solution.

Urine output should be observed.

In dehydration, it will decrease.
Bland soft diet, rice, banana, toast can be taken.
These are usually better tolerated.
Feeling of dizziness, cold, weakness can be signs of fluid loss.

If you do not feel improvement, I would suggest to go to hospital.
I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
