Does Vibrio parahaemolyticus food poisoning affect children differently?

Vibrio parahaemolyticus food poisoning in children requires extra attention to the symptoms they experience, especially vomiting and diarrhea. Children can become dehydrated faster than adults, so look for signs of reduced urination and dry mouth. They should receive fluids with a proper mixture of salts and sugars to replace fluids and electrolytes. Also, some medications to control diarrhea should not be given to children under five, while some antibiotics and medications to control severe vomiting should not be given to any children. You should consult your doctor for assistance with monitoring your infected child.
