What is salmonellosis?

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 salmonellosis

  • Blood in stool

  • Fever

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

  • Abdominal pain

  • Pain when pressing down on the abdomen

  • Seizure

  • Diarrhea

  • Nausea or vomiting

Questions your doctor may ask to check for salmonellosis

  • Do you have blood in your stool?

  • Do you have a fever?

  • Do you frequently feel the need to have a bowel movement but can't?

  • Do you have a stomach ache?

  • Does pressing on your stomach cause severe pain?

Treatment for salmonellosis

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.
