In brief: Maintian hydration
The symptoms generally appear 12 to 72 hours after exposure.
Most people with salmonella diarrhea will recover on their own or only require fluids to prevent dehydration. Antibiotics and antidiarrheal drugs are generally not recommended for persons with typical intestinal infections.
