Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Typhus expressed by ordinary people generally refers to typhoid fever. Typhoid fever itself is a disease caused by Salmonella typhi bacterial infection. Clinically, typhoid fever sufferers commonly experience fever, nausea, vomiting, defecation (diarrhea or constipation), weakness, fatigue, dizziness, headaches, muscle and joint pain, decreased appetite, skin rashes, and many other complaints . However, the diagnosis of this disease is more precisely made after undergoing a more accurate examination, for example laboratory tests (with blood, urine, or feces specimens), and so on.
If you have undergone a comprehensive examination, and the doctor diagnosed with typhoid fever, the doctor will generally give you several types of drugs, including antibiotics, anti-nausea, vomiting, and anti-fever. With proper handling, coupled with excellent endurance, typhus will often improve in 1 to 4 weeks.
The condition of your stool that is still runny and your bloated stomach, could indeed indicate that your typhoid fever is still not healed optimally. It can also be runny stools and flatulence that occurs due to the influence of the type of food or drink you consume, digestive infections, allergies or food poisoning, intolerance or malabsorption, side effects of drugs, and so on. As long as the frequency of your bowel movements is still reasonable (not to exceed 3 times a day), and you don't experience severe vomiting or abdominal pain, often this condition is harmless and will improve on its own. You should focus on getting more rest, not just taking other medicines without recess directly from the doctor. First consume foods that are easily digested, for example soft or fruity foods, coupled with plenty to drink so that your digestive conditions improve. Avoid excessive consumption of spicy, oily, coconut milk, sour, gassed, caffeinated foods, especially those that are unhygienic.
If then your complaint appears more often, and significantly inhibits your daily activities, you should check back with your doctor or specialist in internal medicine so that it is handled well, okay?
I hope this helps.
