Cryptosporidium

CryptosporidiumYou can become infected with Cryptosporidium by touching anything that has come in contact with contaminated feces.

People have contracted cryptosporidium in the following ways:

  • Swallowing or putting something contaminated in your mouth
  • Drinking contaminated water
  • Swimming and ultimately swallowing contaminated water
  • Eating uncooked contaminated food
  • Touching a contaminated surface and then putting your fingers in your mouth

In most healthy people, a cryptosporidium infection produces an attack of watery diarrhea and the infection usually goes away within a week or two. However, if you have a weak immune system, without proper treatment, it can be life-threatening.

Additional signs and symptoms include the following and may last for up to two weeks, although they may come and go:

  • Watery diarrhea
  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss
  • Stomach cramps or pain
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

If you or a loved one has contracted Cryptosporidium, please contact our personal injury attorneys today.

Client Thanks

But, we were always in good hands as Brian and Maria are two of the hardest working and sincerest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They did a tremendous job.
