Thread: Contagion

  1. #1

    Default Contagion

    I sent one of my preschoolers home today with a fever, and she was also crying and saying her tummy hurt. Obviously I jump to the worst conclusion. She didnít V or have any D while she was with us. Earlier in the morning when she first mentioned her tummy hurting, she did a BM, which I had to help her clean herself (TMI I know). It was a normal BM.

    Im just concerned she was already contagious through that BM even though it was normal, because she was complaining about stomach pain. Of course I washed my hands as soon as I finished helping her but Iím still so nervous I infected myself somehow. I know stomach flu is contagious from the moment you start feeling ill, which she was complaining about.

    I realize it sounds ridiculous but that little voice in my head is absolutely freaking me out. Any insight on contagion is appreciated!

    I'm sure you'll be just fine, people aren't contagious until they produce symptoms, and so with a normal BM I am sure there is no risk
