Cold Sweat And Sweat?
I want to ask how long is the typhus healing, my child has just had medication but just now I gave her cold body medicine, at the same time I was sweating, whether it was dangerous or not, so I didn’t dare to give any more medicine or continue or not the medicine? n
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Typhoid fever or typhoid is a disease caused by Salmonella typhi bacteria and can be spread through contaminated food or drink. The main characteristic of this disease is a fever that fluctuates, with the highest increase in body temperature occurring in the afternoon until evening. Other symptoms that can arise are abdominal pain, diarrhea or even difficulty defecating.
Among the factors that increase the risk of typhus are:
Low immune system Consuming any infected food or drink Lack of personal and environmental hygiene Using bacteria contaminated toilets
When suspected of having typhus, the doctor will usually order a blood test, Widal test or TUBEX test. If the result is positive, then someone is said to have typhus. Treatment can be done in an inpatient hospital or on an outpatient basis, depending on the patient's condition. If it is assessed that the condition is very poor or access is difficult to get to the hospital, it is usually safer to treat the patient to hospitalize it.
Then, because it is indeed caused by a bacterial infection, the most effective way to treat this condition is to give antibiotics as the main drug, and other drugs to relieve symptoms, such as anti-diarrhea, painkillers, and fever. In your case, chilling and sweating may be a normal course of typhus. You still have to give antibiotics because antibiotics must be consumed regularly until they run out, but for additional medicines you don't need to give them if the symptoms have subsided, for example, fever-reducing is not necessary if the body temperature has improved.
In addition, you must also pay attention to the condition of your child, if your child looks very weak, pale, lazy to eat, very severe stomach pain or has other conditions, immediately take it to the nearest hospital for further checks. Meanwhile, keep asking your child to get enough rest, eat regularly, wash hands regularly and drink lots of water. We wish your child a speedy recovery.
That's all, hope it helps.
