I saw my boyfriend last saturday and he wasnt feeling great.

Customer Question

Hi i saw my boyfriend last saturday and he wasnt feeling great. He subsequently disappeared from me for a few minutes taking some of my bags with him and vomited in the alleyway but just fluid. When i saw him again i was with him for about 20minutes then said goodbye gave him a peck on the cheek and took my bags away from him. 48 hrs later on the monday i start getting tummy cramps and wake up at 11pm with severe diarrhoea feeling sick but subsided when i went to toilet. Finished bout 4-5am in morning but stayed in bathroom so i avoided my daughter catching anything. Im worried i could of still passed his bug if it was on me or the bags even though i havent been showing any symptoms til the monday night. Can you shed skme light pls on what ive had.

Hi--any fever with this and what do your stools look like?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ive been hot and cold stools up til 10 am yesterday (tuesday) were loose today theyve been a bit more solid less loose
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
OK. This is most likely just a stomach virus that will run its course in about another two or three days. You might have gotten it from your boyfriend and it's passed on through the hands or by sharing food or eating utensils so as long as you wash your hands and don't share food or utensils with your daughter she'll be fine. For now you can use the BRAT diet--bananas, rice, applesauce and toast along with plenty of electrolyte-rich fluids like GatorAde and fruit juices
Let me know if you need more information please

Could i have passed it on before i showed any symptoms
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
No, that wouldn't have happened
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
So if he held my bags and passed them to me i couldnt of passed anything on from those bags and touched anything else. Also if i have had semi loose stools is that still the bug?
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
No--this wasn't passed along from the bags and if your stools are starting to firm up then you're basically getting over the bug
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I didnt share any utensils or food with him so it must be through hands when he passed them to me. I did share a fork with my daughter monday evening but all i had was stomach ache then and shes been fine
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.
I'm sure she'll be fine and you will be, too, in a few more days
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 1 year ago.

You're just a little dehydrated from the diarrhea--you need more fluids
