Hi Rockip,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The term typhus which is often touted by the general public generally refers to typhoid fever, which is an infection caused by the bacterium Salmonella typhi. This infection can cause sufferers to experience various complaints, ranging from fever, nausea, vomiting, weakness, abdominal pain, skin rashes, bowel disorders, and so on.

Depending on the severity of the disease and the treatment given, the healing of typhoid can be short or slow. Generally, the patient will be able to return to normal activities after 2 to 4 weeks.

As for your child's condition which becomes difficult to walk, it may be caused by his body still feeling weak. This can also be influenced by the post-typhoid healing process. As long as he can still walk and carry out his usual activities, the complaints should gradually improve within 1 to 2 weeks.

However, if you see your child is very weak, often falls for no apparent reason, has decreased appetite, or is also experiencing various other complaints, you should return to the doctor for further evaluation. If necessary, the doctor will perform a neurological evaluation. thorough examination to assess the possibility of a neurological disorder that makes it difficult for him to walk. In addition, other examinations, such as laboratory, ultrasound, and so on may also be carried out so that it is clear what kind of treatment is appropriate to do.

In the meantime, you can do the following tips first:

Give your child time to get enough rest Give your child enough to drink Give him also nutritious food, in small portions but often (to prevent nausea) Train and encourage children to move and play a lot Stimulate him by giving toys or other interesting objects for him to want to walk Give him comfortable shoes If the child looks tired or weak, don't force him, let him rest Hope this helps..
