What is the treatment for cholera?

The treatment for cholera is aimed at reducing the symptoms of diarrhea and dehydration. Therefore, the most effective treatment is simply drinking a solution of water mixed with salt and sugar, to replace the body fluids and salt that have been lost during the illness. If a person is too sick to keep the solution down, then fluids can be given intravenously. Antibiotics can also be given to help the diarrhea stop sooner, but the replacement of fluids is the most important part of treatment.
