Salmonella: a bacteria that can cause diarrhea, stomach cramps, and fever

Salmonella are a group of bacteria infect the intestine.

They live in the intestines of animals and humans and are excreted through feces.

Humans are most often infected through contaminated food or water. Contamination is possible if raw and cooked foods are stored together.

Symptoms of salmonella infections include diarrhea, stomach cramps, and sometimes vomiting and fever.

On average, it takes 12 to 72 hours for symptoms to develop after ingesting an infectious dose of salmonella.

They usually last four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.

But if you become seriously ill, you may need hospital care because the dehydration caused by the illness can be life-threatening.
