Is There Danger In Flies In Iced Tea?
I was drinking iced tea and when I drank it turned out there was a fly in the iced tea. Is that dangerous? And now I’m heartburn but you want to go out. How and please give a solution
Thank you for the question.
Food or drink that is infested by flies does have a risk for gastrointestinal infections, due to germs carried by flies that usually like to land in dirty places. However, not all people who accidentally eat or drink something that is infested with flies will experience a digestive tract infection. This depends on the germs carried by the flies and also our immune system. Therefore, this is something that is relatively harmless.
Gastrointestinal disorders caused by contamination of germs on food can have symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Usually this does not last long and can heal by itself. However, if this lasts more than three days, there are signs of dehydration after vomiting and diarrhea such as the body feels weak, the eyes of a cow, and hands or feet feel cold, and reduced urine production, you can consult a doctor to get further treatment .
Here are the things you can do to reduce complaints and prevent infections in the digestive tract:
Take medication containing attalpugit if you have diarrhea, and take ORS afterwards to replace the fluid that comes out.
Wash your hands before and after eating, prepare food, and after going to the toilet.
Wash utensils with dish soap and running water.
Don't change tableware with other people.
Get used to eating in a place with good sanitation.
Hope this helps.
