Brief Answer:
Infectious cause should be looked for

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

Based on your description an infectious cause of the diarrhea should be looked for. If there is fever, white cells or blood in stool then antibiotics can be advised accordingly. Oral isotonic fluids like ORS should be taken to avoid dehydration in the time being. Antiemetic such as domperidone or metoclopramide can be taken for the vomiting / nausea.

Wishing you best of health
