Thank you for the question.
Fever, which mainly appears at night, is accompanied by a whitish tongue, abdominal pain, diarrhea followed by constipation, and coughing can indeed be a sign of typhoid fever, or often termed typhus by ordinary people. In addition, various other conditions, such as dengue fever, hepatitis, urinary tract infections, respiratory infections, measles or other organ system infections can also cause clinical symptoms as your child experiences. It may also be that your child's complaints are aggravated by food allergies or malabsorption, intestinal inflammation, poisoning, immune disorders, and various other medical conditions.
Ideally, if typhoid fever is suspected, it is necessary to do further tests, such as blood tests, stool tests, urine tests, or other supporting tests to confirm it. Has this inspection been carried out? Does your child's condition have not improved after undergoing treatment from a doctor?
In addition to undergoing medical treatment, we recommend that you take the following steps to make healing your child's condition more rapid:
Ask him to rest a lot Give him more to drink Give first food that is easily digested (not too fatty, gassy, spicy, and high fiber) little by little but often Do not get used to snacking children carelessly, especially foods that are doubtful of maturity and cleanliness Do not give children medicine other than what the doctor prescribes. If in 1-3 days after undergoing the doctor's treatment, your child's condition still looks worrisome, do not hesitate to check it back to the doctor or pediatrician to be given further solutions.
I hope this helps.
