Acute And Chronic Differences In A Disease?
Sorry, is there a type of chronic and acute typhus? Thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Acute and chronic is the division of diseases based on their duration. Diseases that occur in a short time are called acute, and those that occur in a long time are called chronic. Examples of diseases that have both variants are sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities on the nose / face) and hepatitis B.
In sinusitis, sinusitis is called acute when it occurs within a period of 1 month, and is called chronic if it has lasted more than 4 months. Some sources call the 1-4 month range as sub-acute. For hepatitis B, acute hepatitis B occurs in a period of less than 6 months and if it is more than 6 months, it is called chronic.
Typhoid or typhoid fever, do not have this variant. Tipes can begin to be detected in the first week, and can last until the 4th week. If there are symptoms of typhus that still last more than that, then the possibility of other diseases must be considered. Therefore, if indeed you or someone you know has symptoms that resemble typhus but do not heal, you should ask or encourage the person to ask the doctor what are the possible causes besides types, what are the next treatment plans and what can be a barrier to healing for you to avoid. So, hopefully answering your question.
