What are treatments for campylobacter infection?

ANSWER

Most people get over the infection in 2 to 10 days without medicine or special treatments. You should drink lots of fluids while you have diarrhea.

Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, don’t take anything to prevent vomiting and diarrhea. That’s your body’s way of getting rid of the infection.

If your immune system is weak, your doctor might prescribe medicine to fight the infection.
