Stomach virus how long are you contagious

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach virus how long are you contagious


Avatar m tn (1) How long does it take for the skin to completely heal. Although the scabs healed almost immediately and the new skin has grown back the area is still red (and noticeable). Is this the virus still trying to retreat to my nervous system? Or is it just irritation of the skin? (2) It has been six weeks since being on Valacyclovir and I thought all signs of the outbreak would have vanished by now. How long should this initial cycle take to vanish?
Avatar n tn it depends on the virus, but if you are exposed it doesn't matter how clean you get your house you are probally going to get it, especially the flu.
Avatar m tn but for the redness to go away). Do you, or anyone else, know how long it normally takes for your stomach to heal completely (as in no signs at all)? (2) I understand that I can still transmit HSV-1 from the genital area. I'm a male (I think this question may be different depending on sex). Is it normal to asymptomatically shed HSV-1 through your penis? Or do I have to have another outbreak to be contagious? (3) What are the rates, or probability, of transmitting HSV-1 via the genitals?
Avatar m tn I see you tested negative for antibodies but positive for the virus (a case of seronegative Hep B infection). Are you taking any medications for this?
Avatar f tn I started to get the red bumps about 6 weeks ago and the itching is so bad and about 4 weeks ago my son got the same thing we have been to the doctors several times and went through the scabies and bed bug scare and nothing. We are being treated with oral steroids and creams and they are not helping. I wonder how long it will take for someone to recognize that this is contagious and disabling.
Avatar m tn You are not giving answer.After this explanation doctors slient and you aswell silent nobody knows about this contagious disease.coz 2 of my roomates got same symptoms like me if its highly contagious the world will swepping soon.i know you dont have any answer of this Question Cause doctors aswell silent still they cannot find any solid causese of this disease.
Avatar n tn Would you list 'due to complications of hep C?' Are you afraid to tell people if you are infected? Do you feel defensive? Well, I'm sure loved ones would like to keep your secrets too.
Avatar f tn Well, unfortunately, you can be contagious a few days to up to two weeks after a stomach bug. But usually it is 3 days. However, she may have had gastroenteritis, etc. which isn't contagious. I'd say you are in the clear but good hygiene to prevent illness is always a good idea.
162948 tn?1205256292 Has anyone had the Mirena IUD and had it removed to ttc. I am just curious how long it took you to conceive after Mirena IUD removal? How long until your menstrual cylces were regular? I got my IUD out on Aug 5th and am ttc. I have had lots of spotting and maybe a period but nothing regular. I called my doc and they said that it takes 3 months before the hormones are out of your system. The mirena website makes it sound as though you can get pregnant anytime after removal.
Avatar m tn As you know I am suffering this for almost 2 years now. This appeared out of the blue in June 2012 (I say out of the blue because I don't take drugs, don't smoke, don't have diabetes, didn't have chemotherapy, and didn't take medicines for long periods of time -besides 1 week of cyprofloxacin in March 2012).
1661682 tn?1313138996 If the bug in question is a stomach may not be able to tell. Stomach viruses can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, diarrhea, and fever. Unfortunately, so can food poisoning. Food poisoning generally lasts a shorter amount of time then a virus. If it lasts for a day or less, it's probably food poisoning. Food poisoning sets in 12-24 hours after consumption of the contaminated product.
Avatar m tn you are story are different from mine but doctor could take a biopsy if there is any major matter appears in your mouth i will have this soon
Avatar n tn Let us know what you find out! (((hugs)))) LvdbyGod,,,There you are! I have been wondering how you have been doing and how you are feeling lately? I knew you were playing mama cat over there LOL and yes,,,I love cats and have some myself!
Avatar n tn To try to put a stop to these symtoms, I am going to be eating and drinking a majority of the above advised foods, being water and tea (I love my tea and have never had a problem with it), i can suggest cutting out dairy for a week or so, if your stomach is tender and painful, try drinking a cap ful of Milk of Magnesia to calm it down (this also helps the vomiting) and eating dry toasted bread (brown is better). I'll get back to you all in a week with how I am doing.
Avatar n tn this was my first iui and i dont understand how you guys do this month after month, i want to fall into pieces!!! you are so strong!!! i really hope to get stronger if this doesnt work! to see as many people on this board as there are with the same issues as myself really helps. you feel so alone untill you find someone with the problems.
Avatar f tn When did this start for you? How long have you been experiencing pain/irritation? Have you had bladder infections (UTI's), Cysts, or yeast infections in the past? Recently I seem to have this little white dot of "stuff" (backed up sebum we're assuming because the doc said it didn't look like puss or an infection) that's STILL collecting under the clitoral hood.
Avatar m tn After two years of tongue problems I was finally was diagnosed two weeks ago with a salivary gland disorder through a gammagraphy (a CT scan). My salivary glands are not working properly and this is what explain why my tongue is always dry or with thick/sticky saliva (xerostomia). Now this Friday I am having a lip biopsy to rule out Sjogren Syndrome (SS).
55646 tn?1263664409 Instead of an oral medication to treat herpes, Genocea out of Boston has taken the approach of stimulating the immune system to respond more robustly to the herpes virus in people who are already infected with the virus. The routinely available oral medicines interfere with replication of the virus, but this treatment is designed to allow the immune system to respond more effectively to the virus and subsequently reduce the frequency of recurrences and reduce viral shedding.

Avatar dr m tn Every time you get a cold, notice how it usually starts in the throat with a tickle, a scratch, or a slight cough. It then progresses into chest congestion or travels up into the ears and the sinuses. You’ll have a low grade fever, mild chills, and a runny nose. Even if you start out with a runny nose, eventually, you’ll have throat symptoms later on. Sounds like a classic cold, right?
Avatar m tn You cleaned the glass out with water which would have either killed or remove the virus. The virus doesn't live long outside of the body. You need to understand in which the virus is transmitted. First off it is transmitted via skin-to-skin contact which needs heat and friction. The virus isn't going to live long on a glass because there is no heatsource and wine isn't a hot drink anyway. You had to have an entry point for the virus to enter and then infect the nerves.
242516 tn?1368227505 They work by stopping the spread of the virus and if you take the antiviral too late, it's too late to stop the spread, it's already happened. Here are some guidelines on helping differentiate between run of the mill colds and more serious bacterial infections: When do I need antibiotics for a cold, as an adult? Never. Are you sick with a runny nose, sore throat, cough, possibly even goey green and brown stuff coming out?
1549643 tn?1495762953 I've had many outbreaks of blisters on my lip, always same spot, crust over and heals within 10 days, my ex-husband used to break out (first) but he blamed it on an upset stomach. I'm so confused. If I'm contagious, I need to know but how do you find out for sure? HSV, IgM I/II COMBINATION - POSITIVE 4.58 H (REF 0.00-0.90) DATE: 5/25/11 HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec <0.91 negative DATE: 5/31/11 HSV 1/2 IGG,TYPE SPECIFIC AB HERPESELECT -- DATE: 8/6/15 HSV 1 IGG TYPE SPECIFIC AB <0.
Avatar m tn Does it the VIRUS go away itself after a period of time? how long is it? The virus does not go away on its own, but there are drugs you can take to lessen the frequency of outbreaks and reduce the risk of transmission. Do i still pass this virus away after it goes away from me? It doesn't go away, at least not with current medicine. It is most contagious when sores are present, but can be spread without sores. cure ?!! No cure, but it is manageable.
Avatar m tn The lesion seems to be getting better. Ive kept a very close eye on my genitals for any appearance of further lesions but have found nothing. The rash has seemed to scab/crust over and is starting to peel like a sunburn. Is it too late to see a dermatologist? Someone also mentioned a type specific igg blood test I could do? Im still hanging on my GP's position to just relax that he is 100% sure that its shingles but I'm having a hard time being at peace with it.
1565297 tn?1295755843 in people, the difference between a Patm and a normal person that have just been infected is that we are always contagious, but they are gonna be contagious just for a short period of time like a normal cold, (why this?
1321692 tn?1304301671 If both dogs vomited the same day, it makes me wonder if they ate something they shouldn't have, maybe something they got ahold of in the back yard. I also think there are contagious "stomach bugs,' for lack of a better term, that go around in the dog population. My vet thinks that a lot of the self-limiting episodes of GI distress that dogs have are caused by corona-type viruses.
Avatar n tn i don't think you might gave the herpes to her, i think she already have the herpes before you to got together, 'coz your test turned out negative. read this: HSV-1 is very common — if you have it, chances are you picked it up when you were a kid. Most people who are infected with the herpes simplex virus got it during their preschool years, most likely from close contact with someone who has it or getting kissed by an adult with the virus.
Avatar m tn There is a long list of reasons you should not be worried about this event. Assuming you are in the US or other industrialized country, it is unlikely (probably around 1 chance in 1,000) your partner had HIV.
