It appears your child has gastroenteritis. The best action here is to feed her with electrol or diarolite XXXXXXX dissolving in boiled and cool water. This you can buy over the counter. Here is a problem if the child refuses oral feeds she can get dehydrated. My advice is to take the child to nearest hospital in A/E dept to assess dehydration and admission in Pediatric ward. The child may need intravenous fluid to correct dehydration. Do not worry the child will be okay.

Kindest regards

Thanks for writing back.

I think you should continue giving oral fluids for 24 hours and slowly introduce soft boiled rice with natural yogurt. After that if she is okay just continue normal diet.
