Patient Comments: Rotavirus - Describe Your Experience

Please describe your experience with rotavirus.

Comment from: Sarah, 0-2 Female (Patient) Published: February 05

My daughter got the rotavirus vaccine at 2 months, but she ended up getting all the symptoms pretty bad within that week. After that the docs said to forgo the rest of the vaccines for it. She is now 2 and has had it about 4 times. It has such a distinct odor that you can tell what it is right away. Luckily with plenty of rest and fluids (and a whole lot of diapers, wipies and diaper rash ointment for all that wiping) she always feel better in less than a week.
