Allow Long Trips During Typhus Treatment?
Morning, I have been on typhus treatment. I was diagnosed with typhus after the blood test results with the Tubex system stated that I was typhus positive (grade4). I have never had a fever so far. For other typhus symptoms such as changes in bowel movements, muscle aches, weakness, dizziness , heartburn (heartburn), I feel it. My question, can I go on a trip back and forth? indeed the doctor advised me to check the condition after a week of outpatient treatment (I refuse hospitalization). I myself now feel all the symptoms of typhus that have been reduced. I never have a fever. But heartburn (stomach ulcers) and dizziness sometimes still appear. Please input, because I’m very confused about what to do before

In typhus diagnosis, history taking is needed regarding the history of the disease, physical examination and supporting examinations such as a complete blood test, Widal examination or TUBEX examination. When the diagnosis is erect, treatment for typhus can be treated with inpatient or outpatient care. This consideration is determined by your condition by the doctor after the examination. One of the main treatment modalities for typhus is antibiotics that aim to overcome the bacterial infection of Salmonella typhii.
It is recommended to re-control the doctor related to treatment according to the schedule, avoid the consumption of food or drink snacks, as far as possible make sure the food consumed is cooked alone so that the processing is hygienic, avoid consuming or stopping medication alone without doctor's instructions.
