How dangerous are salmonella?
According to the Federal Center for Health Education (BzgA), a Salmonella infection manifests itself within a few days after consumption. Symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting as well as mild fever can occur. The symptoms usually last for several days and then subside. In infants, toddlers, the elderly and people with a weakened immune system, however, serious and protracted course of the disease can develop. The continued loss of body fluids and salts then threatens circulatory collapse or kidney failure, which in rare cases can even lead to death.
Should you go to the doctor after eating the eggs?
The Federal Office of Consumer Protection (BVL) advises people who have eaten the eggs and who show serious or persistent complaints to seek medical help. The doctor should be advised of possible salmonella poisoning. However, if you do not develop symptoms after eating, you do not need to go to the doctor. A preventive medical examination is not sensible according to the BVL. (vb)
