In brief: Oral hydration
Salmonella typhi (typhoid fever) is transmitted by drinking or eating contaminated water or food.
High fever, headache, abdominal pain and rash are possible symptoms. Oral hydration is the mainstay of treatment, although IV hydration may be needed in serious cases; oral antibiotics may also be recommended. Anti-diarrheal meds are usually not recommended.
