What is the stomach flu?
The stomach flu is a viral infection in the intestines that can cause unpleasant symptoms, including abdominal pain, diarrhea, and vomiting. Symptoms typically last one or two days, but they may sometimes linger for a week or so. The most common causes of the stomach flu include consuming contaminated food or water and sharing utensils or food with an infected individual.
