Ur paed is probably right.
She might have a viral gastroenteritis.
Just avoid milk,fruit juices and wheat products right now.Give her a probiotic and good hydration with mild antipyretic(Paracetamol).
She might have loose stool in a day or two.Everything will come back to normal after 5 days.
If it doesn't consult ur paed. Hope she recovers soon
