Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. You probably have a stomach bug. A stool analysis may be done to confirm it. Take yogurt and probiotic supplements. Drink enough fluids to remain well hydrated. Adequate urine output and a moist tongue are indicators of good hydration. If your urine output is reduced and tongue is dry, drink electrolyte solution like equalyte. I hope that answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
