Brief Answer:
As discussed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your feedback, albeit short one.
With the additional information that you have given, this looks to be enteritis problems.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Get the stool and blood tested to get us some idea.
X-ray and ultrasonography of abdomen as these will further help.
Consult your Doctor for clinical evaluation and an actual examination so that an appropriate prescription based management can be started which may be an antibiotic active against intestinal infection.
Till then have probiotics, antispasmodic to relieve pain when needed.
Plenty of oral fluids; boiled for 20 minuted and cooled water.
Homemade food only.
Take activated charcoal, yogurt/curds and bananas.

I hope this answer helps you.
