How do you treat diarrhea, vomiting and low appetite?

I got sick 3 days ago within 10 minutes of eating a hamburger with a very disgusting sauce on it. I had diariah that night but no vomiting. I since have no appetite and everything I try to eat leaves a sickeningly sweet taste in my mouth. I do not believe I have had any fever but my mouth is extremely dry. I still don t want to eat anything.
