In brief: Self limited illness

Salmonellosis in the us is nontyphoidal.
This is a self limited diarrheal illness which lasts 2 - 7 days. Treatment is supportive and mainly consists of hydration and electrolyte supplementation. Severely ill patients should be hospitalized and may need antibiotics.

In brief: Salmonellosis

Most of the time, no treatment is required for Salmonellosis.
Oral hydration is important. Antibiotics may be used for at risk individuals (such as infants < 3 months old) or if complications arise. IV hydration is sometimes indicated.
