Brief Answer:
Its acute gastroenteritis.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
The signs and symptoms you have mentioned along with history indicates that you have acute gastroenteritis due to consumption of unhealthy food or might have been infected by not maintaining good hand hygiene before food consumption. You also have viral infection of upper respiratory tract.
Coming to treatment part, I recommend you to take following medications
1. tab sporolac thrice daily for 3 days. its a probiotic which will replace normal gut bacteria.
2. tab. ciplox TZ twice daily for 5 days(antibiotic)
3. tab pan d once daily for 5 days in the morning 30 mins before food.
4. tab sinarest twice daily for two days.
consume plenty of fluids like juices, tender coconut water etc
avoid solid food like non veg, roti etc.. for 3 days, eat porridge, bland food like rice and dal, curd rice etc.
If these symptoms persist after two days of treatment I recommend you to go for few investigations like stool microscopy, and stool culture and sensitivity tests.
I hope this helps you.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
