Stomach Flu (Gastroenteritis)
Stomach flu, sometimes called gastroenteritis, is inflammation of the stomach and intestines. It can be caused by a viral, bacterial, or a parasitic infection.
Stomach flu usually goes away without medical treatment in 1 to 2 days. Home treatment can relieve the symptoms of stomach flu and prevent problems, such as dehydration.
