What is salmonella?

Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a common bacterial disease affecting the intestinal tract. It is usually caused by consuming 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

Since salmonella infection can lead to dehydration, treatment focuses on replenishing fluids and electrolytes either orally or intravenously. Additionally, antibiotics, antidiarrheals, and fever-reducing medications are prescribed.
