A:   Virus are the most common cause of gastroenteritis or stomach flu. Most infections resolve after one week and usually require no treatment other that adequate fluid intake. If you notice blood in stools, fever, vomiting, you may need to see you doctor for appropriate antibiotics and stool tests. I hope you will find the information useful, take care.
