Many causes: A number of conditions may be possible, including COVID 19. If he does not improve, please request testing at your local center. Other causes include viral gastroenteritis, and providing a probiotic,fluids, avoiding dairy products until well, may be helpful. The addition of bananas and rice to his diet may be helpful. Watch for high fever, headache, vomiting, less frequent urination and rash.

Gastroenteritis?: My first thought is a viral gastroenteritis. If he only has symptoms for one day and then looks well, he probably won't need a fancy work up. Take care.
