Gastroenteritis in young children

Magsjuka hos små barn - engelska

Vomiting and diarrhoea are the most common symptoms in children with gastroenteritis caused by a virus. The illness is almost always harmless and passes within a couple of days. It is important that the child takes on fluids, particularly if he or she has severe diarrhoea. This applies in particular to children under the age of one year.

Both adults and children can suffer from gastroenteritis. This information is about gastroenteritis in children who are six years old or younger.
