Stomach flu, or viral gastroenteritis, affects your digestive system and causes inflammation and irritation in your stomach, small intestine and large intestine. The most common cause of stomach flu is the norovirus in adults and rotavirus in children.
Most cases of the stomach flu can be treated at home. However, if you have symptoms such as a high fever, severe abdominal pain, inability to keep liquids down, or vomit or diarrhea lasting more for two days, it’s important to seek medical care.
