Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Food poisoning is a condition that arises from eating food that has been contaminated by bacteria, viruses or parasites. When a person has food poisoning, the symptoms that appear are nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea.
A person's risk factor for food poisoning is when he eats foods that:
Not cooked or still raw Can't guarantee cleanliness Expired or stale Canned Ready to serve Not served properly
Consuming the products you mention because they are in small amounts may not be a problem, but you need to know that acidic, oily, spicy, and caffeine-containing foods such as coffee should be avoided when you have food poisoning.
This condition will actually heal by itself. You just need to make sure you're not dehydrated or dehydrated by drinking lots of water, preferably warm. If your symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea are getting worse or unbearable, see your doctor for medication to relieve your symptoms.
In addition, for the future, always pay attention to the expiration date of the food ingredients that you will consume, especially if you are not sure how long the ingredients have been in your kitchen. Diligently washing hands, cleaning all eating utensils, cooking food thoroughly and freezing food can prevent this condition from recurring in the future. Get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
