The biggest topic of conversation around my boys’ elementary school is who is sick and how sick. Norovirus, a gnarly stomach flu that causes vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps, has hit much of the country. This year, a new strain first identified in Austrialia, could be to blame. The symptoms aren’t subtle. You feel fine one minute and the next it’s like a scene from The Exorcist. I talked with UCLA Pediatrician and Infectious Disease Specialist, Dr. Lynn Ramirez, about what you can do to avoid the illness (or not spread it once you have it) that generally strikes between December and April.

As always, if you feel like you are sick, contact your doctor for treatment advice.
