Hello,

It may be due to stomach infection.

For further assessment you may require complete hemogram, stool analysis after physician consultation.

You may require antibiotics tab metronidazole after consultation.

Along with that keep yourself hydrated by oral rehydration solution.

Take soft diet.

For abdominal pain you can take tablet acetaminophen.

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

Regards,
