Is abdominal pain in children contagious?
If your child has gastroenteritis (stomach flu), this is incredibly infectious and can spread through whole classes at school in a matter of days. Handwashing and hygiene after using the bathroom are very important in stopping its spread. Gastroenteritis symptoms are abdominal pain with vomiting, diarrhea and generalized aches and pains.
