Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

The most important thing you have to look for is her hydration status. A good urine output and a moist tongue indicate the hydration is adequate. If the urine output is not good and tongue is dry, give her electrolyte solution like pedialyte in small sips.

If she is not tolerating pedialyte since she is having vomiting also, take her to the doctor for intravenous fluids to rehydrate her ( in case if she is dehydrated).

The most probable cause is infection. Give her yogurt, probiotics and zinc supplements for faster relief.

I hope that answers your question.
