Appendicitis, described by WebMD as an infection, affects the appendix, a finger-shaped sac that is connected to the large intestine on the lower right side of the abdomen.
Peritonitis can sometimes result from the rupture of an infected appendix.
On the other hand, peritonitis is described as an acute, dangerous infection of the lining of the cavity or bag that contains the gut by healthline.
That is the outcome when the appendix or another area of the gut ruptures or is torn.
The following three symptoms, according to medical news, indicate appendicitis:
1. The primary symptom is constant, increasing abdominal pain.
2. The discomfort frequently starts around the belly button (navel), but it soon spreads.
3. There could be mild fever, vomiting, nausea, or loss of appetite.
According to the World Health Organization, when appendicitis has advanced, the victim's stomach hardens into the consistency of stone and becomes extremely painful to touch.
Such a person needs to be transported right away to the hospital since his life is at risk.
