Keep hydrated : If you are not actively vomiting it is important to stay hydrated. Boil some water, cool down , add 2 tablespoons sugar and half tablespoon salt to 1 liter and keep hydrating yourself. If fever and symptoms persist you should seek medical assistance

Hydration: To first thing is to make sure you are not dehydrated. If your fluid output is greater than input, you are at risk of dehydration and therefore need to seek for medical attention. It's also worthwhile to get a faecal culture done if the diarrhoea is ongoing.

See a DR: You have fever + diarrhea. Your Dr will need to discover the details in order to define the nature of your problem. Any therapy will depend on the diagnosis.
