Stomach flu contagious

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach flu contagious


Avatar f tn If you got the flu shot you most likely have the flu I would go to hospital so they can test you because the flu is very contagious and your putting others at risk. If you can't keep fluids down that is harmful to your baby because it can cause dehydration. And is some cases the flu has been known to kill unborn baby. Just go to the doctors to see what is going on better be safe and find out early then to be sorry and find out if is the flu.

The symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, low grade fever up to 100 degrees and possible cramps are caused by many things, virus or bacterial. However, the most common cause is a virus called Norovirus. It is spead from person to person by fecal oral contamination.
Avatar f tn Has anyone had the stomach flu while pregnant? I'm 90% sure I have it. I feel absolutely miserable. I want to eat but I don't want to get ore sick off what I eat. Any suggestions? My symptoms are terrible belly ache for over 24 hours, weak and tired, acid reflux, nauseated, diarreah.
Avatar n tn Holding his tummy probably means it is hurting, I would take him to the doctor , he will need liquids to stop him dehydrating, try pedialyte, can you remember what he was eating prior to his throwing up ?
Avatar f tn If one of the common symptoms of ARS were flu-like, would those flu-like symptoms be contagious to others. So if you had just been infected with HIV and the flu-like symptoms you were experiencing were from the HIV would you be able to pass those symptoms off to otherslike an actual flu?
Avatar n tn Since ars symptoms include flu and cold like symptoms like fever and sore throat ,hypothetically speaking, are these symptoms contagious by kissing or being in close proximity to someone who is experiencing symptoms of ars?
Avatar n tn Children are contagious longer than 7 days. As was said for both the cold and the flu you can transmit it by airborne methods such as sneezing, coughing and talking or by coughing or sneezing on a surface and then the baby touches the surface and touches his/her face especially the nose or eyes and gets it. Also, with the flu (not a cold) you can spread it by sharing eating utensils. If someone sneezes you can spread it up to 6 feet away.
Avatar n tn ) I fear flu. Quarantine yourselves when contagious, people!!! ...and you are still contagious in those first few days of starting to feel better again...contagious with talking, coughing, sneezing, blowing, touching!
Avatar n tn I felt like I was getting the flu.. I woke Sunday with a fever and still very itchy arms... My fever broke later that day and after that I noticed that I had a rash all over my body (tiny little red bumps filled with fluid) and was itching.. Went to ER and that Dr. told me it was a viral infection rash... On Monday I was still itching so bad I went to the clinic and that Dr advised me that I had Chicken Pox....I feel bad... My head hurts...
Avatar m tn is acute hiv infection contagious? e.g. if I have flu symptoms which could be acute HIV infection (sore throat, headache etc.), could someone else catch a “regular” flu/cold from social contact with me? Or does that mean that it is only some other virus (I don’t have fever)?
Avatar f tn Most adults have some immunity to it. We had a really bad year for viruses, flu, stomach flu, slapped cheek, shingles, and colds. I got slapped cheek with them and it was awful but baby is fine. The dr sent me in for ultrasound but everything was OK. I wouldn't worry.
Avatar f tn I think I have some kind of stomach flu and have had diaherria all day. I'm a ftm and am worried about it being bad for the baby. Has anyone else gotten sick while pregnant?

2050045 tn?1343153733 If it only lasted a couple hours and not several days it was food poisoning...most people get it without even knowing it because they automatically label it as "stomach flu" if your doctor said 2 go if it doesn't go away I wouldn't worry about it if it's finally over with...
Avatar f tn My 2 yr old son has just vomitted for the 3rd time since I've been home (12am) and 1 more time before that. He pukes and doesn't have a problem passing right back out. For example his last time he roled over and puked, cried a tiny bit and then he passed right back out. 3 days ago I contracted, what I thougt, was food poisening, but all last week my wife's mother was really sick with something... seems to be a coincidence!
Avatar f tn t thrown up(yet) but this diarrhea is killing me is there I can do to make it stop or should I call my dr when her office opens? This is my third child and I've never been sick while pregnant so I don't know what to do. Please help!!
Avatar n tn You say "I have a 7 month baby and has the stomach flu." Do you mean you have the flu or the baby has the flu? If the latter, go with the advice from margy. If the former, feed the baby as usual, keeping yourself as hydrated as possible. (Stomach flu doesn't transmit in breast milk.
