Question: salmonela posioning

 neci - Sat Aug 27, 2005 5:53 pm

My 3 year old daughter was in the hospital for salmonela . She got out with no fever after 3 days and with diarreha still occurring. She has been on antibiotics since Aug.18th and now today she is running a fever of 101.2 auxillary. In the hospital she was dehydrated. I am worried about her. Should I call her doctor and let him know? Thank you for reading my question!

User avatar Hi neci,
Yes, you should alert her physician.

Typhoid fever, which is caused by salmonella, has a tendency to relapse.
But I assume your daughter had salmonella gastroenteritis, which is different.
Anyhow, I do recommend you call your doctor concerning the fever.

Thank you both for answering my question! It is nice to know that caring people are just around the corner! I will call her doctor because now it is 102.9 auxillary and she is throwing up again. Thank you again! Neci
