Avatar f tn I cant remember if my daughters pediatrician gave her the rotavirus vaccine before we left Michigan..She is now 2months old and when we went to get her 2 months shot done, they gave her the rotavirus vaccine orally, here in mexico..Will she be sick or anything?

458072 tn?1291415186 federal health authorities recommended … that doctors suspend using Rotarix, one of two vaccines licensed in the U.S. against rotavirus, saying the vaccine is contaminated with material from a pig virus,” CNN reports. The Rotarix vaccine, which is made by GlaxoSmithKline and was approved by the FDA in 2008, has already been given to about 1 million U.S. children along with 30 million worldwide. The vaccine was found to contain DNA from porcine circovirus 1.
Avatar f tn Need information about pnemonia & Rotavirus side effects. Are side effects common and be curable?
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 f tn is the best person to advise you, but I can tell you from personal experience with a very long tummy virus (my 2 year old had lasts a very long time) the most important thing to watch for is dehydration. Water does not do the trick. It's best to give her pedialight, apple juice diluted with water, even ginger ale (complelely flat, no bubbles) diluted with water. She needs the salts and sugars to stay properly hydrated. I also found plain chicken broth worked well.
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 m tn and in early life was infected with giardia and rotavirus (4 month old immediately after weaning) does this affect the GI healing and repar after treating them?
223520 tn?1221440283 So that was the first thing that got me upset. Then the nurse comes in and gets ready to give my son the rotavirus vaccine. I was like he has never had it. She proceeds to give it to him!! I was like um, can you ask the dr. about it? She was like fine. So he comes in and was like Im soo sorry!! I was like OMG! WHAT?! He was like we should have never given him the rotavirus vaccine, since he has never had it. He was like I assumed he had it before. I am freaking out!!!!!!!!
Avatar f tn I went through this not long ago with my then 1 year old. I cannot begin to tell you how many times I was literally given a pat on the head and sent away with a "it will pass". I had to force the issue and he was finally tested for a variety of things. It could be a food allergy or a lactose intolerance. Also, things like celiac's (sounds scary, but manageable through diet). In our case it turned out to be a virus called rotavirus that can last for months.
Avatar f tn How long does the Chicken Pox vaccine last anyway? Does it last your whole life, or do you continue to get the shot for years to come? I need to read that article.
Avatar n tn My daughter had rotavirus when she was very little (6 months)...which in all honesty REALLY ticked me off as she had had ALL 3 oral vaccinations against this. She was hospitalized for 4 days...and wouldn't really take any formula. When the doctor finally released her all she would take was 2 or 3 oz of pedialyte at a time. Apparently, as long as you keep them hydrated it should be fine! Atleast thats what the doctor advised me to do! Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn ve been through these with my 2 1/2 year old and some of them can take a very long time to clear. One that pops into mind is rotavirus. Fevers do not necessarily always accompany a virus. He should see a Dr. Also, make sure he is staying well hydrated. Food is less important then fluids. Juices, pedialight, even milk. Dehydration is always the biggest concern. Is he energetic or listless? That too can tell you alot. If he is listless and weak, then he should be seen right away.
Avatar f tn At 12 months, she began to fall of her growth curve. Shortly after her first birthday, she got rotavirus and became severely dehydrated. After 4 trips to the ER (they thought I only wanted a cure for the stomach flu), she was admitted for 5 days and closely monitored. She was 17.5 lbs at her 1 year check up, she lost 1 1/2 lbs from rotavirus at admittance and upon discharge she weighed 18 lbs. A pediatrician who is a specialist thought she had celiac disease but testing came back negative.
Avatar f tn ve been slipping him something that caused a problem that just looked like UC.....otherwise, how is it suddenly just gone?? Thanks in advance for your help!
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 f tn My son is 7wks old, weighs 13 lbs 12 oz and is 23.75 inches long (8 lbs 7 oz 20.75 inches at birth) at 3 wks of age he began having frequent bloody diarrhea. At the time I was exclusively bfing and had consumed moderate amounts of dairy during those first 3 wks. He ran no fever nor had any vomiting or spitting up. X rays were all normal, showed no looping or twisting. Stool tests showed no pus, gram stain was neg, c diff was neg, rotavirus and adenovirus were neg. parsites all neg.
Avatar n tn a month, then returned. Can you tell me any ideas you may have? Would Rotavirus do this? Would a biopsy be the next step? Thank you.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, I read that rotarix first dose should be administered between 6 and 14 weeks. I also read that the first dose of rotavirus vaccines should not be administered later than 15 weeks. My question now is, should i continue he vaccine on September 4 or should i just skip the vaccine altogether since my son is already more than 15 week old? thank you.
