How do I care for someone with Shigella food poisoning?

A person having Shigella food poisoning should be kept hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids. Electrolyte solutions, available at most drug stores, may be beneficial for children. Do not give over-the-counter diarrhea drugs to your loved one because these may worsen the condition. Consult a doctor if symptoms become severe.
