What are symptoms of rotavirus?

ANSWER

For kids, it usually starts with a fever, vomiting, and stomach pain, which fades just as diarrhea begins. As the virus works its way through your child's system, the diarrhea can hang on for 5 to 7 days.

Adults often have similar symptoms, but they tend to be less severe.
