Gastroenteritis can be caused by:
a virus – such as norovirus or rotavirus
bacteria – such as campylobacter and Escherichia coli (E. coli), which are often picked up from contaminated food
a parasite – such as the parasite that causes giardiasis, which is spread in contaminated water
Most cases of diarrhoea clear up after a few days without treatment,
However, diarrhoea can lead to dehydration, so you should drink plenty of fluids
