'Gastroenteritis is a common condition that can be caused by a bacterial or viral infection, such as E-coli. It triggers symptoms such as diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and a fever, which come on suddenly. These symptoms generally pass within a week.'

'Anyone can develop gastroenteritis, but young children and older adults with weak immune systems are most likely to be affected. Those who are in close contact with others, for instance students living in college dorms or schoolchildren, are also at risk.'

'There is no specific treatment for gastroenteritis, and the illness must be left to run its course. However, medical attention must be sought if a sufferer develops symptoms of severe dehydration such as dizziness; has blood diarrhea; is unable to keep down fluids; or has a fever of over 100F.'

'The bugs that cause the condition are spread easily from person to person, or when someone eats contaminated food. This can occur when a person doesn’t wash their hands after before preparing food, or if produce isn’t stored properly.'
