Should I see a doctor about Salmonella food poisoning symptoms?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

For the majority of people who get infected with Salmonella, medical attention isn't necessary, and the symptoms will naturally wear off in a few days. Only certain people and cases should seek a doctor's attention. These instances include people who are very old, very young, or those who have weakened immune systems. You may also want to get an appointment if your symptoms persist longer than normal, if you develop a bad fever, if you see blood in your feces, or if you're concerned that you're getting dehydrated.
