Rotavirus symptoms

I want to share information with you about Rotavirus symptoms there is diarrhea, vomiting, fever. These symptoms can lead to dehydration. My son was admitted to hospital and on the fourth day only we able to get his diarrhea for test. Thanks to my dear who know to get my little one to sit, he has no choice but to sit on it. I guess from there my dear took the diarrhea and put into the small bottle and get infected. He has purging on the next day, he immediately see doctor and get injection.

The day my son discharge from hospital was the day I admit. I spend four nights alone in bed while my dear took care of little one at hospital. I think I don't need to be admit because the last diarrhea was at eight o'clock in the morning. But since I diarrhea the whole night my dad suggest me to see doctor. The doctor says I am admitted for observation. There is no diarrhea at all after admission, the first day I get to drink barli and I have brought along 100 plus to drink. He says shake away the gas before drink the 100 plus to avoid gas. First day of my admission to hospital no meal but second day I get to have meal and I was discharge on Sunday afternoon.


  1. My son also had rotavirus infection when he was 5 years old. It was non-stop vomitting and diarrhea. I had to put diaper on him because he can't make it to the bathroom even the potty in time. He was admitted 4 days in the hospital. Thank God he was all right.

  2. Oh my! What has happened to you all? Did the doctors tell you where one can get rotavirus? Hope you will all recover from this very soon.

  3. My family (all four kids, one after the other) also had a recent episode with gastroenteritis (or also commonly called stomach flu). Mama Sez made an article about the experience and everything she learned about it. You might wanna check it out
    Hope it'll get better soon.

  5. hi Chin Chin, I also put my son on XXL diaper as smaller size not able to fit him. He refuse to poo on diaper still prefer toilet.

  6. My five year old saw the doctor a few days ago. He said she has rotavirus. She has been vomiting on and off as well as having diarhea for 10 days now. It's been very hard to get her to eat and I've been pushing fluids. Just wondering about other people out there and the experience they've had with rotavirus.
