If you or someone you know have recently had salmonella poisoning, it’s important to understand your various treatment options. Many patients will come to the emergency room and receive treatment from the emergency room doctors, like Dr. Josyann Abisaab, while others will seek out their primary care physician.
Most people with salmonellosis recover on their own in four to seven days with no antibiotics or other treatments. The main goal of salmonellosis treatment is to prevent dehydration. In order to prevent salmonella infections, it’s very important to cook food thoroughly to prevent food poisoning and wash hands carefully during food preparation.
Children should also know to wash their hands after handling a pet. Don’t keep pet reptiles in the home if you have children under five, and monitor children at a petting zoo or farm.
