Brief Answer:
Digestive tract infection is the most probable reason.

Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Thank you for the query.

Most probable reason of such symptoms is gastrointestinal infection caused by viruses. Due to such infection digestive tract do not work property so he may have loose stools, frequent stool, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain.
I suggest you to start giving him probiotic and increase liquids (like a tea). If its mild infection, symptoms should disappear in a day. If not, than you should consult pediatrician.

Hope this will help. Feel free to ask further questions.
Regards.

Brief Answer:
Smelly stool is a sign of infection.

Detailed Answer:
Smelly stool just confirms that this is an infection.
Such infection is usually from a contact with other people. It can be transmitted with hands, foods or even toys. That is why it is important to wash hands especially when he comes back from the daycare.
Mosquito bite has nothing to do with his symptoms.

Brief Answer:
Usually such infection is not serious.

Detailed Answer:
Such infection is typical condition for many kids in his age. Its not serious as long as he is well hydrated. Mucus or blood in stool simply means that the infection is rather bacterial so antibiotics must be given. But still, if he is under good care, its not serious.

You should try with the milk.
