Diarrohea, body ache, fever, smelly breath. What is treatment?

My 4 year old daughter gets watery diarrhea , body aches and fever at night only. She seems to be just fine during the day. Her fever is generally 101-102 and she has had this for two nights now. She also gets smelly breath and is very irritable. I am wondering what this might be and if I can do anything besides keep her hydrated and give her Tylenol for the fever and aches?

Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have Gastroenteritis mostly viral or a bacterial one.
Maintain her hydration by giving sips of oral rehydration solutions as dehydration and decreased oral intake may lead bad odor of mouth.
You can ask her to do salt water or betadine mouth gargling.
Give plenty of oral fluids to drink.
And one probiotic may be added like lactobacillus orally.
Consult your Pediatrician to assess her hydration and for further treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
