Listeria infection: Healthy people rarely become ill from listeria infection, but the disease can be fatal to unborn babies and newborns. People who have weakened immune systems also are at higher risk of life-threatening complications. Prompt antibiotic treatment can help curb the effects of listeria infection. Symptoms may occur very quickly, within a day or two but may also be delayed for months in onset. ...Read more

I'm 36 weeks preg. I are coleslaw last weekend not knowing I shouldn't. For the last two days I have aches, stuffiness, headache. Could it be listeria?

Coleslaw?: I don't see why you can't have coleslaw as long as it is properly prepared. You can get a food borne illness anytime from anything. As far as listeria, while it is theoretically possible, cole slaw is not a typical food where it is found. Muscle aches, fever, vomiting and diarrhea are the more common symptoms. ...Read more

How long after getting listeria will it show up in blood tests? What if I had it a month or more ago? I am pregnant.

Blood cultures: Listeria testing is best done when one is acutely ill typically through blood cultures. Pregnant women with high fever, diarrhea, myalgias and headache in whom no other more common cause can be identified may be tested. For a potential infection more than a month ago typically no testing is done and fetal surveillance through basic prenatal care and ultrasound are done. ...Read more

I am 13 weeks pregnant and ate queso fresco accidentally last night. What can I do to ensure my baby doesn't contract listeria?

I am 13 weeks pregnant and ate queso fresco accidentally last night.  What can I do to ensure my baby doesn't contract listeria?

Yum yum...: Queso fresco is quite delicious (mexican cheese made from raw milk) and only causes problem if it is contaminated. American cheese is made from pasterized milk, thus less chance of bacterial contamination. Listeria is a serious infection, but rather rare...7/million in us...For now, just monitor closely...If fever, abdominal pain, diarrhea etc..Consult doc...Otherwise, should be ok... Good luck. ...Read more

Can listeria be transferred to my toothbrush? How long does it stay in the mouth? Can i pass it to my boyfriend by kissing or sharing cups?

Can listeria be transferred to my toothbrush? How long does it stay in the mouth? Can i pass it to my boyfriend by kissing or sharing cups?

Possibly: Possibly, but your infant also has some of your own immunity from the placenta. Rinse once an hour for 30 to 60 seconds with original bad tasting listerine for six hours and that should kill as many germs as possible. ...Read more

Is pain on waist under ribcage on the right side, a symptom of listeria? I also felt a little nauseous but didn't throw up. Lasted 4 hours. Or could it be symptoms of not eating the whole day

Is pain on waist under ribcage on the right side, a symptom of listeria? I also felt a little nauseous but didn't throw up. Lasted 4 hours. Or could it be symptoms of not eating  the whole day

Indirectly : If you have listeriosis you probably should be treated for it. And if you are treated then a lot of the bodyaches could be related to vomiting , coughing and just the natural progression of this illness. When in doubt please get this checked out. ...Read more
