Hello Tiia, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Regarding the results of the widal examination as you wrote above, these results can be interpreted as typhus positive or not, depending on the limit value of the widal examination results set by each health service facility, there are several facilities which specify that the widal examination results indicate the number 1/160 tested positive for typhus / paratyphous disease, but there are also several health care facilities that stipulate that 1/320 is the limit for a person to be diagnosed with typhus / paratyphoid disease. Therefore, to find out whether your child is indeed affected by typhus or not, You should ask the doctor directly who checks on your child.
Regarding the doctor's decision to refer your child to get self-care must have been based on various considerations, whether these considerations are based on the condition of your child who is not good for outpatient care, considerations for optimizing treatment and others. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you follow these recommendations to ensure that your child gets the optimal treatment and care to support the recovery of his illness. If you want to find out more about what the doctor's basis for examining your child suggests treatment, you should ask the doctor directly.
Likewise regarding drugs that have been given by doctors, even though they may not have a fever and are beginning to see improvement, these drugs should still be given until there is further advice from the doctor who gave the drug or there is a suggestion from a doctor who further treats your child, because the treatment of each disease has its own time to ensure the elimination of the main cause completely, therefore the treatment given must be obeyed properly to ensure your child gets optimal improvement and does not experience failure in the treatment of the disease.
In the meantime, make sure your child gets nutritious food even if he is sick, give him food that is soft and easy to digest beforehand so that the situation allows him to return to eating more solid food. Also make sure your child gets enough rest during this illness and provide adequate fluids (drinking water) every day. And always do the other recommendations as suggested by the doctor who treats your child.
I hope this helps.
