Official guidelines for how long a child should stay home after contracting rotavirus vary from state to state. In Texas, for example, there is no specific guideline for rotavirus, like there is for ringworm or pink eye. However, children with diarrhea, fever, or two or more vomiting episodes in the past 24 hours should be kept out of school.

A rotavirus infection may go away without treatment. Your child may need any of the following if he or she is dehydrated or at risk for dehydration: Extra liquids may be needed. Ask how much liquid your child should drink each day. Good liquids to drink include water or fruit juice. Your child may need an oral rehydrating solution (ORS).

The first dose of rotavirus vaccine should be given before a child is 15 weeks of age. Children should receive all doses of rotavirus vaccine before they turn 8 months of age. Both vaccines are given by putting drops in the infant’s mouth.

Your child’s doctor can help you choose which rotavirus vaccine to use. For more information, see. Use chlorine-based disinfectants to clean surfaces, toilets, toys, and shared items in your home. Have your child stay home while he or she is sick. Keep your child away from others for as long as his or her healthcare provider says you should.

Do not let your child return to school or daycare until the provider says it is safe. Rotavirus is the most common cause of serious diarrhea in babies and young children. It usually affects children between the ages of 6 and 24 months of age. Without vaccine, almost all children will have at least one episode of rotavirus diarrhea before they turn 5 years old. When older children and adults get rotavirus, they have a milder illness.

The virus may live on surfaces such as doorknobs, toys, and other hard objects for a long time. For this reason, outbreaks can occur in households and child-care centers. To prevent spread of the virus, children who aren’t sick should not be in contact with a sick child. Which children are at risk for rotavirus?

Most children get the virus. During the course of the infection, your child might first get a fever and vomit. Watery diarrhea can then occur between three and seven days thereafter. The infection itself can last for 10 days.

How long does rotavirus last? In the western world most children recover within a week of symptoms starting. When should I seek medical advice? Most children who have gastroenteritis in the UK (including gastroenteritis caused by rotavirus infection) have mild symptoms which will get better in a few days.

cine should not get another dose. A child with a severe (life-threatening) allergy to any component of rotavirus vaccine should not get the vaccine. Because the oral applicator for Rotarix contains latex rubber, infants with a severe (anaphylactic) allergy to latex should not be given Rotarix; the RotaTeq dosing tube is latex-free. Rotavirus vac

Rotavirus usually starts with these symptoms, which then fade away. Diarrhea begins after the first three symptoms have stopped. As the virus works.

  • What a bullshit, rotavirus can be treated with antibiotics, i got it twice and im adult, no diaper was involved, i twice got it from food once in cafe, second time the sourse was unknown but probably food also. Not always dangerous, both times i was recovering at home, but feelings you get from this virus are total hell, agree

  • Children can catch a rotavirus infection if they put their fingers in their mouths after touching something that has been contaminated by the stool of an infected person. Usually this happens when children forget to wash their hands often enough, especially before eating and after using the toilet.

  • I had rotavirus when I was 8, I was in the hospital for at least 2 days. My stomach hurt like hell and I vomited so much. After it was better the diarrhea still hung for about a week
