3. Can Salmonella cause typhoid?

Yes. Salmonella bacteria could also cause typhoid fever.

4. What should I do to stop diarrhea?

In most cases replacing lost fluids to prevent dehydration is the only required treatment. Medicines are helpful in some cases, but they are usually not recommended for people whose diarrhea is caused from a bacterial infection as stopping the diarrhea will tend to trap the organism in the intestine, prolonging the problem.
