Can a child get adenovirus infection twice in a month, or would it be the same infection getting a relapse?

In brief: Reinfected

Reinfected with different serotype rather than a relapse.
Adenovirus infection most often involves upper respiratory tract causing common cold and sore throat (pharyngitis or tonsillitis). It (different serotype) occasionally causes eye infection (acute hemorrhagic conjunctivitis) and gastroenteritis.
