Stomach flu contagious period

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach flu contagious period


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.

3166043 tn?1514260018 I just randomly woke up with like abdominal pressure and sure enough I had a random bout of diahreaa. I've had my since Sunday and I'm scared. Is it from that? I haven't eaten much cause I don't have a appetite during my period so I've been eating things like bread with peanut butter, bagels with LOTS of cream cheese and crackers and cheese so how can I have diahreaa? I'm scared there's something seriously wrong with me.
Avatar m tn Any other symptoms? I had this in the "incubation" period (period before symptoms, but you're contagious) before I found out I had mono.
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?
203342 tn?1328737207 most stomach bugs have an incubation period of 24-48 hours, and people are contagious before showing symptoms. i am like your son- as soon as i start feeling better i want to EAT and always end up regretting it with severe stomach pains. encourage him to eat small bits of light food and drink frequent small sips of gatorade or juice.
Avatar n tn I am not aware of a blood test for HPV, but it behaves more like a cold of the flu than herpes. People with the flu have contracted new strains as opposed to having an old strain reactivate. Herpes is a little different because the virus "hides" in the sacral ganglia.
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 f tn If you were diagnosed in April with your first-ever genital wart outbreak, then you are not done having outbreaks. You can expect to have an outbreak of one to multiple warts every two weeks to three months for about a year. In some cases, people have outbreaks for as long as two years, but that is pretty rare. The majority experience outbreaks for approximately one year. I wouldn't worry about the cream.
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?
