Rotavirus Infection

Rotavirus is a virus that causes diarrhea among persons in all age groups, but is most common among children between 6 months and 2 years old.

Infants younger than 3 months old rarely develop diarrhea from rotavirus infection.

Since rotavirus infection is not a reportable disease in Wisconsin, the specific incidence is unknown.

There is no specific medicine to treat rotavirus infection, but your doctor may recommend medicine to treat the symptoms.

Antibiotics will not help because they fight bacteria not viruses.
