Stomach virus transmission

Common Questions and Answers about Stomach virus transmission


Avatar n tn I had a stomach virus 5 days ago, and 5:00 this morning my boyfriend woke up with one. can i get it AGAIN by re-filling his water cup and standing a few feet away from him?
Avatar n tn Washing hands before and after meals, after a visit to the bathroom, after playing outside or going to a store, and after being close to a sick infant, help prevent transmission of virus and bacteria. People also get saliva on their hands and transmit illness to commonly touched objects in the home, like the phone, doorknobs, refrigerator door, etc., so they should be sanitized if someone is sick in the house. But gosh, I admit, that was one heck of a virus or bacteria everybody had!
Avatar n tn During the last day of the sore throat, I started having severe burning sensation like a localized high fever running down from my throat (2 days) to my armpits (3 days) then to my left stomach area (my guess is my spleen, for 3 days) and then down to my crotch (2 days), it was hell for more than 1 week, 1 sweat so much that my bed was drenched. I felt very weak and could not do anything but stay in bed the whole time. I also lost my appetite.
Avatar m tn I did receive treatment for the possible bacterial infections STD given z pack, doxy, ofoflax, uribel and something for trich. My neuro said it's probably a unknown virus. I have been on a few rounds of antivirals for herpes just to see if there is a reaction, the antivirals seem to help the symptoms but herpes test was neg. I am thinking this maybe undetected herpes infection accompany with a fungal overgrowth due to excess antibiotics.
Avatar m tn Doctor said it was probably a bad virus and it did start to get better. Then, lower stomach pains. This tells me it's chlamydia. My question is this: could I have transmitted it to my wife through vaginal sex if the infection is in my throat?
Avatar m tn Four days later I had to leave work early as I had diarrhea and dry heaving ( I would have vomited but had nothing in my stomach) I also had fever and sweating. This lasted for about a day or so. Now when I looked up her internet profile today it said she was also sick just after our encounter, this begs the question what are the odds of contracting hiv through unprotected oral sex as a receiver.
1156883 tn?1262431356 Today I had diarrhea possibly because I drank last night on new years eve at home. I don't drink regularly so maybe it upset my stomach but the diarrhea was later today after I ate dinner. Only one time. My biggest question is how do I know if a cut is "open" on myself. Does it have to be bleeding to be open? What do you think my risk is of contracting hiv in this scenario? If i'm not at risk please don't tell me to get tested to ease my mind.
Avatar n tn I've read everywhere about HIV oral transmission included here. I know testing doesn't make sense before 6-8 weeks (maybe even 12 weeks). What are the risks of HIV infection through oral in these circumstances? Should I worry? How can one tell the difference from a cold, other common virus and HIV? Thanks! I always have these terrible paranoias and start feeling all the symptoms described online and start really getting sick following my sexual contacts. It's really bad.
Avatar n tn I agree, it does get a bit paranoid sounding around here discussing transmission modes. By far the most likely method of transmission remains IV drug use, however with the numbers of those with HCV proving to be more prevelant than prediction models indicated ( for instance, the estimate for 2005 of newly diagnosed cases was off by a million+) after quite a few years of HCV infection rate trends historically DECLINING we do need to look more carefully at other possible transmission modes.
Avatar f tn So does herpes infect where the virus was transmitted? If he had hsv2 on stomach would it spread to my stomach? I was naked so could it spread to genitals?
Avatar n tn About 1 month ago I came down with a stomach virus. Ever since then I have been nauseated and constant diarrhea. It can't be new medications because I'm not on anything new. I do have an appetite, but I hate to eat because it makes me feel worse.
Avatar m tn I had protected intercourse with a girl, then I ejaculated on my stomach and cleaned myself with a towel, the girl who was with me picked the same towel and used it to wipe her genitals. My semen was on it, is there any risk of HIV or STD transmission for her?
Avatar n tn I have a herpes transmission question. I was at a strip club the other night and received a lapdance. This woman began to "grind" on me with her butt. My shirt began to ride up as she was doing this. Her butt made skin to skin contact with my stomach. When she got up, I noticed some red bumps on her behind. If these sores were herpes, is it possible to contract the virus? Thank you for your help.
Avatar m tn I am worried about the chance of transmission from when she apparently was bleeding and kept cutting my hair. She handed me her comb and had me use it after she was done, and I can only assume there was blood on it. I am sick to my stomach with worry. Is there a chance I contracted something if I had a wound I didn't know about on my scalp?
Avatar f tn This doesn't sound like an immune reaction to herpes. This is another virus (cold/flu). Such a virus is more dangerous than herpes! In the end, your daughter will more likely than not either get an oral infection whilst she is young or a genital infection when she is older (but not both). Have a guess as to which a woman would prefer?
Avatar n tn In addition, transmission of EBV requires intimate contact with the saliva (found in the mouth) of an infected person. Transmission of this virus through the air or blood does not normally occur. The incubation period, or the time from infection to appearance of symptoms, ranges from 4 to 6 weeks. Persons with infectious mononucleosis may be able to spread the infection to others for a period of weeks.
Avatar n tn I'm so sorry to be late getting back to you, I've had the stomach flu. Genital to genital transmission of HSV 1 is not common because people shed HSV 1 infrequently. It isn't none, but shedding occurs on about 5% of days evaluated. 1) we don't have the statistics on that question. I can say that if one acquired HSV 1 orally, it would recur more often than if it were genital. 2) I've certainly seen HSV 1 transmitted through intercourse, no question, as have others.
Avatar f tn I think testing a spouse occasionally is good practice, even though the odds of sexual transmission are low. It does happen; it’s just that sex is a poor disease vector. From a personal standpoint, I was one that was married for twenty years, likely infected for the duration and she never developed the disease.
Avatar m tn No risk Saliva and stomach acids would render the virus inactive. HIV is transmitted by SEX and using sharing DRUG rigs,. I doubt your daughter is doing either.
Avatar m tn You don't know if ir was blood, and you certainly don't know if the blood had an active virus, whether that be west Nile,ebola,or HCV. Also the blood has to get into your bloodstream. Swallowing something doesn't have anything to do with entry into the blood stream.
Avatar m tn This means that the blood of someone who is infected with the hepatitis C virus has to come into contact with the blood of someone else for transmission of the virus to occur. The hepatitis C virus is not transmitted by sharing eating utensils or dishes nor contaminated food or drink. It is a good thing to be aware and careful about spreading the virus, in this case you can relax and not worry. From the CDC Transmission and Symptoms How is HCV transmitted?
Avatar m tn My question is, I remember she kept wiping her vaginal secretions with a tissue and I think she touched the secretions with her fingers, could she pass me HIV virus through those scratches? if her fingers had secretions? Maybe those secretions were dry at the time she scratched me I'm not sure.
Avatar f tn Hey doc, I tested positive for herpes virus through IMg test because I had all the symptoms but no blisters my question is if it came back Positive for hsv do actually have either type 1 or type 2 genital herpes. My symptoms and reasons for testing were as follows ,tingling groin, pins and needles in groin and generally all over from waste down also sore buttocks, headach, fussiness,tired all the time been going on since my encounter with sex trade worker in Vegas 3 months ago.
Avatar f tn 2) Also since it appears I'm going to have outbreaks in a lot of areas (thighs, buttocks) and not just around my vagina, are condoms even going to be very effective during times of asymptomatic shedding? 3) How frequently will I be shedding the virus since it was recently acquired? I've read that Valtrex is more effective for controlling shedding than acyclovir. Is this true? 4) Should I just plan on not having sex again for the next five years for fear of passing it on to someone else??
Avatar m tn Two weeks later I break out in ulcerated red spotty gums in one area of the mouth (around the tooth before wisdom tooth top left, with a couple of tiny spot further up), two weeks later than this I get stomach ache with some Diarrhoea which lasted a week, although it was loose rather than any more regular than usual (now normal). From this another mouth ulcer came with red spots and groin/neck/general muscle pain (I still get some neck pain at top of spine/base of skull).
Avatar f tn -) It means you have to have sex in order to transmit it. The virus doesn't live that long outside of the body. The virus needs heat in order to stay alive. It is easily killed with soap and water. The bathroom isn't the best place it will be found at. Sharing towels is a concern but you shouldn't do that anyway. We get sick. Kids get sick (gotta love school). I had the flu for about 2 weeks. After that I got better and then came back down again with the cough.
Avatar n tn You probably just got a virus. STDs are by definition sexually transmitted - you definitely can't get anything from using someone else's headphones, or touching, hugging, etc.
Avatar f tn I wouldn't want to ruin a beautiful thing for a stupid virus. I also have a chronic stomach condition which would make treatment very hard for me, so I worry...I guess I'm writing these things to you (again, I apologize if they sound silly or offensive) because I can't really talk to the people around me, since they most likely wouldn't understand my predicament. Not many are educated about Hep C and they're pretty judgmental and mean. Many, many thanks again!
18253605 tn?1463626915 To be fair this was two days ago but I've had pain around liver area and just don't feel right in my stomach either I probably shouldn't of tried picking the remains out of my nose and caused it to bleed to be honest I feel so stupid, I would appreciate some in depth knowledge on this as I'm totally unsure and rather worried about this.
Avatar m tn I'm also worried because i have 2 boils on the upper pubic area that were possible open at the time, what would the likely hood be that the hiv virus could of been transferred there. i had a quick response finger prick test done at 19 days it came back negative i also had a full std bloodwork done up on the same day i just got the results back and they came back fully negative.
