Symptoms of an E. coli Infection

Symptoms of an E. coli infection include abdominal cramps and diarrhea that can be bloody. Usually, these symptoms develop within one to three days of exposure.

Over-the-counter anti-diarrheal medications and antibiotics should not be given to patients with E. coli infections as they can increase the chance of developing hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure.

About 7 percent of E. coli patients develop HUS. Symptoms usually set in about one week after E. coli symptoms. They include:

  • Pale skin
  • Skin that easily bruises
  • Decreased urine output
  • Lethargy
  • Bloody diarrhea 

Anyone with these symptoms should seek immediate medical care as HUS can be fatal. Treatment for HUS includes transfusions, dialysis, plasma exchange, and kidney transplants.
