Common Questions and Answers about Rotavirus norovirus


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?
1770029 tn?1325802355 However, the most common cause is a virus called Norovirus. It is spead from person to person by fecal oral contamination. It is highly contagious and so when someone in a restuarant ,or anywhere really, doesn't wash their hands after using the restroom it gets spread to another person. For example if they didn't wash their hands and prepared foods a whole outbreak will occur such as often occurs on cruise ships. In children they can also get Rotavirus in the same manner.
Avatar f tn It depends on what type of infection you have whether or not it is contagious. So if you have a type that is viral such as one caused by norovirus or rotavirus you could have a contagious type or a bacterial one like Clostridium difficile, Salmonella or Shigella pr Ecoli that has a toxin (not all strains have it). So you need to find out which one by having the doctor do some lab tests or telling you which one you have. The main thing is washing your hands well after using the toilet.

Avatar f tn It could be that new norovirus that is going around, it is said to be very severe. Google "new norovirus" or "this year norovirus" and you should find it. Another thing to check, just to rule it out -- google the symptoms of appendicitis.

Avatar m tn Last week I caught norovirus. I've sanitized everything and washing my hands more often. Can I get reinfected with Norovirus in the coming weeks? I read different medical articles online, and there seems to be a 6 months up to 2 years of resistance period before getting reinfected. Can anyone shed light? Thanks.
Avatar f tn We all got the Norovirus on the return ferry from France. I cant go to work and feel I have let everyone down. I wont earn money as no sickness pay, and I have to tell manager that I cant come in. She probably wont believe me or else think I am a wimp. She will let me know how many extra hours she will have to do to fill my role as well as hers.

Avatar n tn Hi. The "nero" virus is actually a misspelled term for the norovirus, a virus which causes stomach flu. Apparently, you're not the only one who has searched the internet using the mis-spelled term. Anyway, if you want more detailed information I'm sending you the Center for Disease Control's web page about this virus:
