treatment for common cold

Treatment of sickness bug (gastroenteritis) Gastroenteritis is a common infection of the gut. Many viruses, bacteria and other germs can cause gastroenteritis. A virus is the most common cause of gastroenteritis. Viruses are easily spread from one person to another. This is often because of the virus being present on people's hands after they have
