Can Typhus Recur And How Is It Managed?
I was 22 years old, last year I was diagnosed with typhus symptoms, I did not realize that I had typhus symptoms. What I want to ask is whether when someone has typhus 1x at a later time it can recur / be exposed again? How are the symptoms? How to handle it,
Thank you for the question.
Typhus, or in the medical realm commonly referred to as typhoid fever, arises due to digestive infections due to Salmonella typhi bacteria. This disease, the clinical symptoms are diverse, can be mild, can also be severe. Frequently, typhus sufferers will complain of their limp body, fever, excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, no appetite, dizziness, headache, abdominal pain, fatigue, rash on the skin, and there can also be interference with bowel and small patterns. Typhus can also cause serious complications, such as triggering intestinal tears or spread of infection to the brain, causing more severe clinical symptoms, even at risk of death.
Having typhus does not necessarily mean that you are invulnerable and can no longer be infected later. Therefore, you still need to be vigilant and avoid any triggers that can cause you to contract typhus, for example by:
Do not snack carelessly
Make sure you only consume food and drinks that are clean, well-cooked, and not infested by flies
Get used to always wash your hands with antisepti soap, especially before and after eating, after toileting, and any contact with dirt
Make sure you live in a healthy home, with a well-arranged distance between the septictank and the kitchen, which is well sanitized, and not too densely populated
Also use good quality, boiled water for drinking and daily activities at home
If later you experience symptoms similar to typhus as mentioned above, you should go to see your doctor directly or a doctor in the disease so that it is handled well yes ..
I hope this helps.
