ROTAVIRUS STOMACH BUG ADVICE
from NHS Direct

Rotavirus gastroenteritis is caused by the rotavirus, which is a virus that spreads easily between children. It is the most common cause of gastroenteritis (sickness and diarrhoea) in children and most will have been infected by rotavirus by the age of five. After they have been infected, they will usually become immune to rotavirus, so future infections, if any, will be less severe. Rotavirus rarely affects adults as immunity to the virus lasts a long time.

Causes of rotavirus

The virus lives in the bowels of infected children and is present in the diarrhoea that an infected child produces. It can be spread either through droplets in the air, or through infected surfaces or materials such as a child's potty, or clothing. The virus then enters the body through the mouth or nose. The virus can be spread while your child has diarrhoea, and for around 48 hours after symptoms have stopped.

Treatment for rotavirus

Rotavirus gastroenteritis usually lasts anything from 3-8 days. However, you can make your child more comfortable by doing the following:

Stop them becoming dehydrated by giving them frequent sips of water or unsweetened fruit juice, even if they are vomiting. You can also add a rehydration formula to water, which is available from pharmacies. A rehydration formula will provide the correct balance the water, salt and sugar that your child loses through vomiting and diarrhoea.

Preventing rotavirus

Good hygiene is the most important way of preventing the spread of rotavirus. Make sure everyone in your family or household washes their hands after - using the toilet, changing nappies, handling soiled clothing and linen, cleaning up diarrhoea or vomit, and assisting children with going to the toilet.

Also make sure they wash their hands before preparing food and drink and eating.

SEMINAR FEEDBACK

Hi David, I am still buzzing from the seminar! I have never felt so relaxed in an atmosphere, subject of which would normally have me panicking! You and your wife made the whole experience far less daunting than I could've imagined and I could have stayed there all day.

I was amazed to see so many people and immediately got comfort from that. Also knowing that there are varying levels of fear going on is helpful to know. I feel like I already have a bit of a clearer knowledge of how the mind works now and realise how the therapy would help me in overcoming this fear.Thank you!
