3227684 tn?1347373065 Hello everyone, I have always had the fear to vomit, which mainly implies fear to contract norovirus or rotavirus. I had gastroenteritis once during my childhood; since then, I didn't have it; at least, I didn't throw up. But the fear is always present, especially today, because I walked near a vomit pool on the floor of a public place. It was not very close to me; I was certainly at three to five meters from it. Is it possible that I catch the virus?
Avatar n tn Frequent watery stools with vomiting can be due to viruses like rotavirus, adenovirus, etc.The symptoms of viral gastroenteritis can mimic diarrhea caused by Salmonella species or Escherichia coli or parasites like Giardia lamblia. A clinical examination and investigations like blood counts, liver function tests and stool examination may be done. The most important of treating viral gastroenteritis is to prevent severe loss of fluids and prevent developing dehydration.

Avatar f tn You need to contact your local health care provider for the same. Rotarix is indicated for the prevention of rotavirus gastroenteritis caused by G1 and non-G1 types (G3, G4, and G9).It is given in two doses (1ml each by mouth) at an interval of four weeks. The first dose is recommended at 6 weeks of age but could be given as late as 20 weeks. The second dosage should be given no later than 24 weeks of age as Rotarix has not been studied in older infants.

175861 tn?1428182413 Thank you for your response. I was recently diagnosed w/gastroenteritis (rotavirus, they think) as I had diarrhea some days, yellowish color, tho I still have it now (3rd week)--sometimes the diarrhea, sometimes not. Always yellowish. And more recently saw a white string like object in stool. Bout an inch long, not that skinny. From what I read, it doesn't sound like a worm. But I don't know what it could be. My primary doc said to go to the gastro doc again.

8101930 tn?1420001456 My son is 2 months and just received his first shots yesterday including the rotavirus vaccine. I noticed that after his shots and today he has been pooping yellow colored like normal but it is very chunky. He is exclusively breast fed and always has a little bit of a seedy stool but this is very chunky. I'm Just curious if anyone knows if this is normal or not. Could it be from the rotavirus vaccine because they do ingest it. Thanks.
Avatar m tn At 2 months she was to get dtap and rotavirus. The dtap vaccine that was requested was daptacel and I asked to double check. A couple days later it was realized that the pediarix combo vaccine (dtap, polio, and hep b) was given instead. I don't want to keep giving the combo and would rather give the daptacel. Do I continue on with dtap schedule using different brand or do I need to start over?

Avatar n tn I have been suffering from chronic diarrhea for years. I noticed that it only happens early in the morning (if i happen to wake up at that time) and never later in the day or evening. Also, I get the urge to go twice, usually after I eat breakfast. I decided to deal with that by not getting up early anymore, and wake up later in order to avoid getting diarrhea. Does anyone have that same problem? Any answers?
