Handling Of Typhus That Never Healed?
Good afternoon, About for almost a month I contracted typhus, yesterday I just finished the medicine the day after tomorrow. From the initial check-up at one of the clinics to a blood test and tested positive for typhus, I always see a different doctor each subsequent control too. So far, my body still feels weak, especially my legs, sometimes my neck still has a fever, until my headaches ache, plus there are small cuts on the palate and the tip of my tongue on my to my lips. . The last doctor I met at the clinic suggested that, if the medicine (from the start of the main antibiotic and fever-relieving medication) had finished, still try to visit a specialist in internal medicine. What do you think I’m sick of? Am I still suffering from typhus? Why so far no doctor has suggested that I infuse? thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Typhus is a disease that occurs due to Salmonella typhii bacterial infection and is characterized by the appearance of fever, especially fever throughout the day that fluctuates, with rises in the afternoon and evening and down in the morning and afternoon. Besides fever as the main symptom, other symptoms that can also arise are difficult bowel movements or diarrhea, muscle and joint pain, dirty tongue, headache, feeling unwell, dry cough, stomach ache, loss of breath, eating, skin rash, fatigue and weak.
In your case, there is indeed a clinic or hospital that allows patients to choose a doctor, so that patients see the same doctor every time they control, but there are also those who don't, so who you will see depends on the doctor's guard schedule. However, actually it is not too much trouble to see a different doctor because communication between doctors has been done through medical records. The problem is if you switch between doctors in different checkpoints, because there is no way that one doctor knows what the other doctor has done or asked about.
Then regarding your illness, your condition that does not heal even though it has been given treatment, can occur because the bacteria are immune to antibiotics given, it could be because there is an error in the use of the drug so far, and also because there are other medical conditions that have not been detected before, such as such as immune system abnormalities, thyroid hormone imbalance, or other infections. Therefore it is important to check yourself with a specialist to get a better examination and treatment.
As for why you were not infused, infusion is not a standard treatment for typhus. If the patient's clinical condition requires him to be hospitalized, then one of his actions is given an infusion to ensure the fluids and drugs given can meet their needs. However, if it is considered that the condition is still fine and does not need to be hospitalized, then not being infused is okay.
Our advice, it is better if you still feel the condition does not improve, check yourself to the doctor of internal medicine as your doctor's advice before. Meanwhile, multiply rest, avoid stress and cigarette smoke, multiply the consumption of vegetables and fruit, do not have too much physical activity, and keep your body clean and wash your hands regularly. So, hopefully answering your question.
