Enteritis: Indigestion of food and Malabsorption. This is a short duration therefore BRAT diet for next 4 days may help you. Drink plenty of water and electrolytes.If it continues beyond 1 week then you need to get examination.

Sounds like: a fat malabsorbtion problem which can be associated with a number of enteric viral infections! Check with your Primary Medical Care Provider if symtoms persist! In the meantime avoid fatty foods!! Hope this helps! Dr Z
