It’s that time of year again when the stomach bug seems to be going around. Here at Westchester Health, we’re seeing lots of cases of it and wanted to put out this helpful information from a recent blog by by Lauren Adler, MD, FAAP, a pediatrician in our Westchester Health Pediatrics group, as soon as possible. Sometimes called the stomach flu (although it has nothing to do with the flu), a stomach virus is caused by rotavirus, norovirus or adenovirus and brings along with it nausea, vomiting and watery diarrhea.
The best way to prevent a stomach bug? Wash your hands.
