Re: how long does a stomach flu last

It depends on whether you have ingested a bacteria or a virus. It's not a flu..which is respiratory..

The recent virus that spreads like wildfire can last up to a few days...but one who has it can be contagious for up to 2 weeks via feces even though symptoms have ceased.

Always wash your hands and try not to touch your mouth or lick your fingers and if you're in close quarters with another, don't share towels, keep the bathroom clean and don't share glasses or eating utensils..

I've recently been witness as to how many women don't wash their hands after using the bathroom....even from being in a cubicle..just imagine what's on the lock..bleh.

Hope you don't get it....
