A Good Medicine For Typhus?
The doctor asked permission, is a good medicine for infimox used for typhus?
Thank you for the question.
Typhoid or typhoid fever is a disease caused by infection of Salmonella typhii, which is characterized by symptoms of fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and feeling of weakness. To diagnose this disease, the doctor will explore the history of complaints, conduct physical examinations, and supporting examinations such as blood checks, Tubex-tf checks, and Widal titer checks, so that doctors can make appropriate treatment if it is positive for typhoid fever.
Typhoid fever will generally be treated using quinolone antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin. The drug you mentioned is also a quinolone class of antibiotics, moxifloxacin, but it is not a first-line quinolone class to treat typhoid fever. In addition, you are not recommended to take antibiotics by themselves without any prescription or doctor's advice, because antibiotics are hard drugs that have many side effects and can trigger antibiotic resistance if not used properly. Therefore, you should visit a doctor.
In addition, there are other recommendations to help relieve the symptoms of typhoid fever, such as:
Get a complete bed rest at home. Take heat relievers like paracetamol. Eat foods that are soft and hygienic. Sufficient drinking water needs of 2-3 liters per day. Wash your hands before eating and before preparing food, and before going to the toilet. Do not use cutlery together with other people. Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
