How to rotavirus infection transmitted?

Jul 2nd 2014 at 8:58 PM

Due to vomiting and diarrhea in children can become dehydrated, so it is recommended that children in addition to the mandatory visit to the doctor, drink plenty of fluid. The condition can appear several times

because there are several different types of rotavirus. Maybe they re-infection, but not as severe as the first.

How to rotavirus infection transmitted?

Rotavirus is very infectious and is rapidly transferred. Large amounts of rotavirus are excreted in the faeces of infected people with their hands are transferred to different objects, the objects again in the mouth.

Children may excrete rotavirus already before the onset of diarrhea and after the onset of diarrhea.

The family of these viruses are often passed on to other family members. Viruses can also be transferred through the air, for example. inhalation aerosol, resulting in vomiting.
Treatment of

infections caused by rotavirus is very important to replace lost fluids. We recommend consumption of any liquid, strongly advised not only drinking fizzy drinks. The child should drink several times a day little by little.

The pharmacies are also a variety of solutions aimed at replacing lost fluids and electrolytes. Special diet is not required. If the child is breast-fed, breast-feeding should be continued.

Treatment of diseases with animal charcoal or other preparations not make sense. The disease is not treated with antibiotics. If fluid replacement in a child who has diarrhea or is vomiting, it is not possibl

, seek medical attention. In particular, infants, and young children due to diarrhea and vomiting can quickly "dry up". Lost body fluid is necessary in this case to replace the infusion.
How can I prevent infection with rotavirus?
frequent and proper handwashing;

thoroughly wash the food that they eat raw (fruits, vegetables, etc.);
patients with fresh infection should stay at home;

children attending kindergarten or school, to return to the collective minimum of 24 hours after the cessation of diarrhea and / or vomiting; better after three days;

patients with diarrhea and / or other signs of fresh infection should not attend public pools, saunas, solariums, etc..;

patients who have diarrhea should not attend especially families with small children, the chronically ill or elderly people;

infected persons should not prepare food for three days after diarrhea and / or vomiting,
surfaces that have come into contact with infected secretions (izbruhanino etc..) should be disinfected with a chlorine disinfectant;

Clothing and linens that may be contaminated with infected secretions, should be immediately removed and washed,

if the family (collective) have several toilets to sick people use their toilets, healthy person, other sanitary facilities.

One possibility is the protection of vaccination against rotavirozam. In Slovenia, there are 2 vaccines. One offers protection against rotavirus genotype 7 second against 5 first is available in two doses, one in three doses.
