Brief Answer:
Food poisoning most likely.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

Thank you for your follow up.

Your problem is most likely from food poisoning. It can be from the eggs or chicken you had. Body will flush out the poison by diarrhea. Usually severe diarrhea will be there for 2 days followed by decreasing the episodes. It is self limiting also.

Take ORS , tender coconut water or fruit juices. You can take rice with curd and bananas. Taking fluid and electrolytes according to loss is important. Applying hot water bags on abdomen will be soothing.

If still not decreasing then you should do a stool routine to rule out infection. Antibiotics can be taken in case of infection. Approach ER in case of severe dehydration.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
