Rotavirus is another common illness that many children are vaccinated against, but as there are multiple strains of the virus that causes it (and as no vaccine is perfect), no one is completely safe. Rotavirus is one of the most common causes of diarrhea in young children, and a good many little ones come down with this one sometime in their first three years of life. Rotavirus also comes with a fever and vomiting. The biggest concern is dehydration; watch out for extreme thirst, lethargy, dry skin, and too few wet diapers or bathroom trips. Rotavirus is pretty contagious, and the first line of defense against it (aside from the vaccine) is regular hand washing. Manage the fever, push liquids (water, or consider electrolyte drinks), and keep in touch with your child’s care provider. Don’t hesitate to go to urgent care if necessary.
