Cholera Treatments

Treatment

Fluid Replacement

The first priority in treating cholera is to replace fluids and electrolytes lost through diarrhea . In severe cases, uncorrected dehydration can be fatal. Hydration solutions can be given orally or through an IV.

Antibiotics

Antibiotic medications help shorten the course of the disease. They may also be given to the people you live with to prevent them from becoming ill.
