In brief: Treamtment
Treatment with anti-biotic that has the ability to fight the infection.
Cipro (ciprofloxacin) is one that covers, but there have been more and more instances of drug resistance so a culture should be obtained prior to starting the antibiotic.

Antibiotics are not recommended for otherwise healthy people with uncomplicated salmonellosis. We generally use antibiotics only in infants, the elderly, immunocompromised people or those with infection outside the GI tract.
