Hello,

It could be gastroenteritis possibly viral in origin. Most cases respond spontaneously. Continue liquid foods to prevent dehydration.

If symptoms persist better to consult a pediatrician and get evaluated. In severe cases, antibiotics may be required.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
