Fever Accompanied By Cough With Phlegm, Flu And Heavy Eyes With Sore Throat?
Good morning, on Thursday morning I had a high fever accompanied by sore legs and coughing. Then I took sistentol, dexa, then mucopect. Friday, the fever has not subsided either. Then I decided to go to the hospital and in the ER my temperature was 39 C. I was worried that I might catch typhoid. Then I asked for a lab check but the doctor at the hospital said because it was still the first day so I couldn’t. Now my fever has dropped to below 37 C. But to this day my body is still warm. what I want to ask, do I have to keep checking the lab? Then whether my fever is classified as a result of typhoid? My fever is accompanied by cough with phlegm, flu, a bit heavy eyes, sore throat, and feeling nauseous. Then if it is typhoid, can the treatment be done at home (not hospitalized)? Thank you
Fever occurs when the body temperature reaches 37.5 degrees Celsius or more. Fever can be caused by various things, such as certain viral, bacterial or parasitic infections, such as respiratory tract infections, flu, sore throat, scarlet fever, typhoid, or urinary tract infections.
Lack of body fluids or after vaccination, can also cause an increase in body temperature.
Typhoid is caused by food contaminated with Salmonella typhi bacteria. Symptoms of typhoid include:
fever, headache, diarrhea, or constipation, dry cough. The diagnosis of typhus can be made through a physical examination by a doctor by knowing the symptoms experienced by the patient, as well as supporting examinations such as blood tests (Widal test, TUBEX test).
Typhoid was treated with antibiotics. Typhoid treatment can be done in the hospital or at home if the symptoms are still mild.
Try to keep eating nutritious foods on a regular basis. It is better to eat smaller portions but more often. Cook food until done. Keep the food and drink that will be consumed clean. Drink lots of water. Have sufficient rest time. Do not smoke.
If the temperature is below 37 degrees Celsius, without taking fever-reducing drugs, then the body is not in a fever condition. However, if the body is still weak, you should see a doctor. So that an examination can be carried out, and if necessary will be carried out supporting tests such as blood tests, to determine the health conditions experienced. The doctor will provide the right treatment according to the results of the examination obtained.
