Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 09 May 2022

Vibrio vulnificus and other Vibrio germs reside in cozy seaside waters. Vibrio bacteria can cause disease when an open wound is revealed to coastal waters, or when an individual eats infected fish and shellfish. Consuming raw shellfish, particularly oysters, contaminated with Vibrio might cause vomiting, diarrhea and abdominal pain. People with compromised body immune systems, particularly those with persistent liver disease, are also likely to develop a blood stream infection with fever and cools, blistering skin lesions and potentially death. Correct handwashing; Avoid polluting prepared shellfish with raw shellfish and its juices. Avoid of briny or salt water if you have an injury, or cover your wound with a water-proof bandage if there's an opportunity it might enter contact with brackish or salt water, raw fish and shellfish, or raw seafood juices. Tell your medical provider if your skin has come into call with brackish or salt water, raw seafood, or raw fish and shellfish juices if you develop a skin infection.
