Hello Lina, thank you for asking with HealthReplies.com.
Typhus or typhoid fever is a disease that occurs due to bacterial infection of Salmonellatyphi which spreads through contaminated food and drink. Typhus usually can improve in 1-2 weeks with appropriate treatment. To help the healing process, it is necessary to pay attention to the food consumed. As for the treatment, follow the medical advice from your doctor. In addition, you can do some of this at home to help resolve complaints:
- Get enough rest
- Give children soft foods with balanced nutrition, which are foods that contain a source of carbohydrates, protein, fiber, low fat and vitamins.
- Eat small portions but often
- Avoid foods that are spicy, sour, fatty, fried
- Routinely washing hands before and after doing activities, especially before and after eating
- Increase the consumption of water
In typhus patients, it is recommended to eat high-calorie and protein foods, where milk is one of the food sources that meets these criteria. However, typhus people should not drink any milk. Milk that can be consumed by people who are sick with typhus is only sterile milk which is pasteurized.Pasteurization is a milk heating technique using low pressure hot steam to reduce the number of pathogens that cause disease. This sterilization process can kill dangerous organisms such as the cause of listeriosis, typhoid fever, tuberculosis and diphtheria.
Take your doctor regularly, and follow the tips above.
> For now due to the corona virus outbreak, it is urged to stay at home, avoid leaving the house except for important purposes, keep a distance from others, consume nutritiously balanced food, multiply water consumption, routinely wash hands with soap, avoid crowded places, and enough rest.
Thank you, hope that helps.
