Gastroenteritis associated with the first rotavirus infection is characterized by vomiting, watery diarrhea, abdominal pain, and a low-grade fever. Bowel movements may occur as often as 20 times daily and may last up to nine days. Vomiting may also be severe.
Dehydration is common in rotavirus infections, due to watery diarrhea. Signs of dehydration may include tiredness, weakness, an inability to drink, deep breathing, lack of tears, or cold hands and feet. Symptoms generally occur about two days after the initial infection. Subsequent rotavirus infections may be asymptomatic (lacking symptoms).
