Gastroenteritis also known as stomach bug or stomach flu, is infecting campus. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain/cramping, fever and / or headache. If you are experiencing these symptoms make an appointment online or call 919-515-7107. The virus is spread by touching contaminated surfaces or objects and then touching your mouth, eating contaminated foods or drinks, and direct contact with stool or vomit while caring for a sick person.
If you become sick, take care of yourself with:
- Medications. This may include fever reducing, anti-nausea, and/or anti-diarrhea medicines.
- Oral Rehydration. Sip only clear non caffeinated liquids, such as ginger ale, water, ice chips, sport drinks, broth soups.
- Diet. Once liquids are tolerated eat a bland diet. This would include crackers, noodles, rice, and toast, and limit dairy. Advance your diet as tolerated.
- IV Fluids, as needed. Make an appointment with Student Health for this treatment.
Prevention is key to staying well. Washing hands is the most important thing to do to prevent getting or spreading the infection. Also, decontaminate surfaces and objects, such a computer keyboards, door handles, and steering wheels.
