Small child, several vomiting episodes, excessive thirst, stomach bloating, body heat. Cure for symptoms?

My 4 year old daughter vomited a couple times the night before last night. She went to sleep after, woke up and drank water several times during the night. She stopped vomiting but let out very bad smell and has a bloated tommy these two days. she is also not very active. Her body felt hotter from time to time but came down right away - when we measure with themo, it says 96

Your daughter is having gastroenteritis as it started with vomitings, followed by foul smelling stools. Because of some dehydration there will be excessive thirst and hence increased intake of water. You can give sips of oral rehydrating solutions to prevent dehydration and probiotic and antibiotic can be addes after consulting your Pediatrician.
