Thank you.

You have gastroenteritis, an acute inflammation of stomach and intestines, which is most likely a result of viral infections.

Most of the times, this is self limiting and goes away (or at least starts to go away) with in few days.

For stomach pain and discomfort, you can take Prilosec (available over the counter) 20 mg once daily for few days.

Banana

Rice

Applesauce

Toast should be preferred meals.

Avoid fatty and spicy meals.

The only reason to see a doctor is, if you develop any of these;

Blood in stools

High grade fever

Severe diarrhea and dehydration with exhaustion
