Bacteria can cause gastrointestinal disorders
Salmonella can cause severe gastrointestinal disorders (salmonellosis).
The disease occurs a few hours to days after the infection and manifests itself primarily through sudden onset diarrhea, abdominal pain, malaise, feeling cold and headache.
In some cases, vomiting and mild fever are added.
The symptoms usually disappear on their own after a few hours or days.
However, fluid loss due to diarrhea and vomiting can be dangerous for infants, young children, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system. (ad)
