Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Your child seems to have viral infection with gastroenteritis.
Give sips of oral rehydration fluids like Pedialyte to prevent dehydration.
Monitor her hydration by her activity, urine output, and skin turgor.
You can give her curd and yogurt as they contain probiotics.
Hope I have answered your queries.
