Can Consumption Of Typhus Drugs And Wound Infections Together?
Hello warahmatullahi wabarakatuhDok I want to ask Grandpa I get a lot of medicine because there is typhus and an incision in the leg. Allow taking these drugs simultaneously. Drugs include vitamin B complex, 500 mg Paracetamol, 500 mg ciprofloxacin, 25 mg diclofenac sodium and 60 ml compound. Thank you
Hello Reynetha, Thank you for the question.
Typhus is a digestive tract infection caused by Salmonella typhii bacteria that is transmitted through food and drink that is contaminated by the feces of the patient. This infection causes a person to experience symptoms of fever, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea / constipation, headaches, decreased appetite, weakness. Someone who has been shown to have typhus through a doctor's examination (including blood tests) will be treated with antibiotics for a certain period of time and other drugs to deal with patient complaints. Ciprofloxacin is a fluoroquinolone class of antibiotics that can be used to treat bacterial infections including typhus. The presence of an incision in the foot is also potentially infected by bacteria, especially if the wound is initially dirty. Ciprofloxacine antibiotics can also play a role in preventing infections in the wound. The main treatment that your grandfather must consume is ciprofloxacin antibiotics. If your grandfather is going to take several medications (as prescribed by the doctor), they can be taken together. However, if you are worried about the number of drugs that must be consumed, there are several drugs that can be taken if needed.
Paracetamol is a drug used to treat fever or pain. Sodium diclofenac is a non-setroid anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that functions to treat pain and inflammation. Both of these drugs can be taken if your grandfather experiences symptoms. In other words, paracetamol can be consumed only if your grandfather has a fever and sodium diclofenac can be consumed if your grandfather experiences pain in the incision.
Vitamin B complex serves to maintain muscle health. eyes, nerves and helps the formation of red blood cells. Kompolax is a syrup that contains glycerol. paraffin, and phenopthalein which function as laxatives. Your grandfather can take this laxative until your grandfather's chapter returns smoothly or according to the doctor's recommendations.
Please advise your grandfather to:
keep the wound clean and dry
Avoid contact with water for at least 3-5 days
replace wound dressing every day or every dressing wet or dirty; do wound care in accordance with doctor's advice
avoid consuming spicy and oily foods
avoid consuming food and drinks that are not kept clean
always keep your hands clean before eating
Do not hesitate to consult your doctor again if your grandfather's complaints still occur even though you have been taking the medicine for several days.
I hope this helps.
