How does intestinal flu

The intestinal flu is caused by rotaviruses that infect the gastrointestinal tract, and (like most viruses), upper respiratory tract. Rotavirus is widespread in the environment, they are not afraid of bleach, so for the prevention of the infection you should drink only boiled water.

The virus quickly spread from person to person with dirty hands, through everyday objects, sneezing, coughing, runny nose. Very often seriously ill and young children. Most intestinal flu outbreaks occur during a flu epidemic, in connection with which there was a name "intestinal flu".

When are all manifestations of intestinal flu, the virus did not immediately leave the human body, man is a carrier of infection for at least two weeks. After intestinal flu for some time retained immunity Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults  Immunity - types and characteristics in children in adults

If the disease is not very difficult for the child hunger enough to hold a few hours.

Special treatment of rotavirus infection does not exist. At high temperatures prescribed antipyretics to combat dehydration and toxicity are introduced different solutions, supported by the work of the cardiovascular system, impaired under intoksikatstii. To maximize the removal of toxic substances from the intestines into the patients received medications - adsorbents (activated charcoal, smectite), which is deposited on the surface toxins and remove them from the body.
