Maybe: Gastroenteritis. Start with clear liquid like water, soda that is clear, or sports hydration drinks. Sip often to prevent dehydration. Work up to solids with bland foods like bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, gelatin, or chicken. Avoid alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, dairy & high fat foods. Rest.

The sulfur smell is from "nitrosamines", the waste gasses of some intestinal bacterial infections. This usually implies a bacterial contamination intestinal infection, such as poorly cooked meats, or improperly stored leftovers. The most important therapy is active hydration with electrolyte containing beverages such as Gatorade or PowerAde. Sometimes an antibiotic is appropriate too.
