Viral Gastroenteritis (say: GAS-tro-enter-EYE-tis) is the inflammation of the stomach and small and large intestines. Viral gastroenteritis means the inflammation is caused by infection with a virus. It often causes vomiting (throwing up) or diarrhea. Viral gastroenteritis is often called "stomach flu," but it is not caused by flu (influenza) viruses.

Mononucleosis - Infectious Mononucleosis (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Mononucleosis (mono) is a viral infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). This virus is transmitted through infected saliva. This may happen by sharing a drinking glass, utensils, or food, or through coughing, sneezing, and kissing. Despite common belief, mono is not very contagious. People in the same house rarely come down with it at the same time. It is more common in 15- to 25-year-olds. This may be because of more intimate or closer contact with others. For most people, the EBV infection usually occurs during infancy or childhood and without the typical signs of mono developing. Audio available. (English)

Herpangina and Hand-Foot-and-Mouth Disease (Child) [English] Permalink Public

Herpangina is an infection caused by a virus. It causes small red spots to appear at the back of the mouth. These spots then become little fluid-filled sacs (vesicles) that quickly pop, leaving small ulcers or sores. The ulcers are very small, only about 2 to 4 millimetres wide (about 1/8 of an inch). They can be very painful and may cause your child to refuse food and water. Audio available. (English)
