Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

If a family member or friend is infected with Salmonella food poisoning, you should make sure that they are comfortable and that they drink plenty of fluids. Give them water and herbal tea, such as chamomile. Make sure that they have access to a nearby washroom. Always wash your hands after touching someone with Salmonella food poisoning to prevent the spread, and make sure that your loved one is washing their hands regularly, as well.
