Health complaints in the gastrointestinal area

Salmonella are bacteria that can cause Salmonellosis in humans. According to the Lower Saxony State Office for Consumer Protection and Food Safety (LAVES), the first symptoms of salmonellosis appear after 12 to 36 hours, such as severe diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal and headache and general malaise.

In addition, there is usually a slight fever. Bloody diarrhea and high fever can also occur with severe illnesses.

“Children under the age of ten are particularly affected. Clinical diseases are becoming increasingly common, especially in infants and young children. Older people who have reduced defense are also at risk, ”explains LAVES.

Anyone who has possibly consumed food contaminated with Salmonella and develops severe or persistent symptoms should seek medical help and point out a possible Salmonella infection. However, it does not make sense to seek medical treatment without symptoms. (ad)
