My 5 and 6 y.o. Came home last weekend with a stomach virus, they started back up again today. Is it possible to be re contaminated?
Recurrent GI bug: The immune system 'should have' registered a specific response to the first illness, so it's unlikely it's the same exact virus as before.

That is because the receiving person either still has the virus or currently has lots of antibodies to block the virus. More likely, this child hasn't fully recovered and may be having some off and on symptoms from the original stomach virus. ...Read more
