I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The issue is from intestine infection. Primary guidelines at present
- Consume more liquids.
- Prefer easily digestible diet with more of fresh yogurt for probiotic support.
- Avoid all non-vegetarian, spices, junk foods.
- Get a prescription of probiotic from your PCP.
