Hello,
Thanks choosing HealthcareMagic for your query.
Have gone through your details and i appreciate your concerns.
most likely its gastroenteritis,usually gastroenteritis is by viral infection(Nova virus) and is self limiting,Takes five to sevendays,But as you mentioned its already more then a weak so most likely you are having either bacterial or protozoal infection or a mixed infection.
I would suggest you to go for few tests
Ultra sound abdomen
Stool test under microscope
Complete blood count
Total and differential leucocyte count.

Answer -1
Bad smelly burps are suggestive of incomplete digestion and fermentation of food inside and is suggestive of ongoing infection.


Rx
Start taking Zithromax(Azithromycin 500 mg once daily) and secnidazole 1 gram daily for 3 days.

Specifically for burps take Omeprazole 40 mg twice daily.


Answer 2-

try small amounts of plain foods, such as soup, rice, pasta and bread.
Use special rehydration drinks made from sachets electral solution to maintain depleted electrolyte levels in serum.
You can take boiled vegetables.
Avoid meat and other proteins.
