Dear Kerry Wilson,
Loose stools, sore throat, fever- Probably its a viral fever. It will cause body ache and needs bed rest. It will take atleast two to three days to improve, till then keep giving calpol every fourth hourly. But hydration is important, try buttermilk, tender coconut water, milk, sips of water. she should pass good amount of urine. Getting a physician opinion always will help. Looking at the throat will help decide whether antibiotics are needed.

Don't worry she will be alright in few days. She needs some days of rest and hydration.

Take care
