Gastric flu in children is a common viral infection that goes with diarrhea and vomiting. For several years, an increase in the incidence of this intestinal infection has been noted, especially in young children up to 5 years of age, who often end up in hospitalization. Children can get sick several times, except that the first infection is usually the most severe. Rotavirus or adenovirus is to blame.

Many varieties

The so-called gastric flu can trigger up to seven rotavirus groups, among them there are three types A, B, C - extremely virulent.

You get sick with stomach flu in winter and early spring. Infections are local epidemics. They move very easily in kindergartens and nurseries as well as hospitals.

Infants and young children up to three years old suffer the worst disease. In this group, stomach flu is most common. It can also appear in people with reduced immunity (after another infection), tired, with chronic diseases. In adults, the disease is usually mild and lasts less than in children.

Gastric flu is rarely asymptomatic. Most often it is mild or has strong symptoms - a lot depends on the age of the sick person and their current state of health.

Gastric flu in children course

The disease incubation time is two days. During this period, viruses multiply in the intestines and irritate their walls. The first symptoms are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Poses in a child infected with rotavirus or other viruses that cause stomach flu are large, watery, and stinky.

In the most severe course of the disease, diarrhea can last for 4 to 8 days, but loose stools may appear long after the baby feels good. Some children may have diarrhea for up to several weeks.
