What is Shigella?
Shigella is a strand of the bacillary dysentery that affects the intestine and is caused by a lack of hygiene and contact with faeces. While the infection can be picked up in the UK it usually only displays mild symptoms compared with other strains of Shigella that can be contracted abroad.
When travelling abroad you should always seek sterile water for drinking, teeth cleaning or for freezing and using as ice. If you do find yourself with Shigella dysentery or suffering with any of the symptoms below then you could make a compensation claim.
Depending on the stand of Shigella that you contract will lead to a variation in symptoms, some of the more common include:
- Abdominal Cramping
- Vomiting and Nausea
Medical treatment is not normally required unless the symptoms last longer than a few days in which case a GP should be consulted. It is often advised that someone with Shigella or Dysentery should keep their fluids up and paracetamol can also be taken to help alleviate some of the symptoms.
