Thanks for posting your query.

I will try to help you with some suggestions.

Presence of yellow stools indicates presence of fat in stool. This can be due to undigested food in your system. This is the most common cause. At times any problem related to liver, pancreas and gall bladder can lead to yellow stool.

Please do following:

>Take plenty of fluids orally. You should take oral re-hydration liquids readily available, soups, fruit juices, coffee, etc. This will prevent dehydration.
>Take light diet. Curd will help
>Take proper rest.

Please visit ER or your doctor in case of following:
>Continuous diarrhea
>You are not able to take sufficient fluids orally
>feeling of tiredness, weakness
>Decrease frequency and quantity of urine
>Fever, abdominal pain

In the above mentioned cases you need proper medical attention and treatment.

Please do not ignore any of above.

I hope this answers your query, I will be glad to reply any follow up query that you have.

In case you do not have any further query, please accept the answer.
