Hello,

You need to do stool analysis at first to know the cause, if it is salmonella infection, then you may take doliprane as a treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,

Hello, I just got lab results indicating positive for Salmonella 1:20. I did have a serious case of vomiting last week (8 days ago) and mild fever, but feeling better (went to doctor and was having buscapin until 2 days ago). I believe I contracted that in Guatemala. My question is: Does it need to be treated with antibiotics or something else even if I feel better?

I contracted salmonella while traveling in UK. This is day 3, and I seem to be on the back end of this mess. Still have GI issues, but fever seems gone. I m taking probiotic Florastor to help with GI. Is there a period of time I should wait to consume alcohol after I m in the clear? I don t believe I got the strand causing Typhoid Fever, and it seems one should wait several weeks before consuming alcohol, but I didn t know if the same is true for milder cases.

I believe I was infected with salmonella via a chicken salad sandwich on Thursday about 11am - and by 10pm I was experiencing explosive watery diarrhea and extreme chills with abdominal pain, wretching nonproductive vomiting (post Gastric Bypass 7yrs)....this continued until I had not urinated for 16 hours and had lost 14 pounds on the scale in 36 hours and was tachycardic 130bpm with a low bp 90/62...I went to ER, received 3 liters saline and urinated 50 cc, was sent home...I am now experiencing constant sweats with diarrhea slowing to every 3 hours. WBC , eisinophils below normal at er lab, other indicators of dehydration as expected...the sweats are a change - is this normal and what is the cause? or mechanism that is occuring in this infectious process?

I am really concerned about myself. I have been sick from my stomach since the first week of august. My wife came back from out of town and brought me cooked tripe from the valley. I ate it for a few days and then a week later I became ill. I got a fever of 101 and a bad stomach bug. My kids then contracted the bug and so did my wife but none as strong as me and all without fever. They have all gotten better for the most part. Two of them still have a little diarrhea, but nothing else. I on the other hand have a constant stomach ache every time I eat. I feel full all day. Then when I eat a little my stomach starts to rumble and ache. I have lots of gas and am really concerned at this point. I have looked up possible causes and I can only come up with two Salmonella and tape worms. The tape worms, I have glanced at my stool and I didn t notice anything strange. I just don t know about the Salmonella. Can anyone help? I am trying to aviod a doctor visit for lack of ins and that will be another 100.00 plus.
