What is salmonella?

Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a common bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella infection is usually caused by eating raw or undercooked meat, poultry, eggs or egg products.

Symptoms of salmonella

  • Fever

  • Abdominal pain

  • Diarrhea

  • Feeling the need to pass motion even though nothing comes out

  • Pain when pressing down on the abdomen

  • Nausea or vomiting

Questions your doctor may ask to check for salmonella

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose salmonella

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Do you have abdominal pain (stomach ache)?

  • Do you have loose stools or diarrhea?

  • Do you often have the urge to pass motion but are unable to do so?

  • Do you feel severe pain when pressing on your abdomen (stomach)?

Treatment for salmonella

Because salmonella infection can cause dehydration, treatment focuses on replacing fluids and electrolytes either orally or delivered directly into a vein (intravenous). In addition, antibiotics, antidiarrheals and medication to reduce fever are prescribed.
