Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, typhoid symptoms are not the name of the disease. Symptoms are just things that are found or felt that can be used to direct the diagnosis of certain diseases. For example, people who experience symptoms such as fever up and down, headaches, weakness, decreased appetite, muscle aches, coughing, abdominal pain, bowel disorders (constipation or diarrhea), rashes on the skin, can direct the diagnosis of typhoid fever. However, to be able to ensure a definitive diagnosis of typhoid fever, laboratory examinations such as serology or tissue culture must be carried out.
If your child shows certain symptoms that are troubling you, especially if they do not improve on their own after more than a week, then you should take your child to the pediatrician for further evaluation (especially if your child is under 2 years old and his weight did not rise well following the growth curve).
There are many reasons why children do not want to eat. Generally "attacks" do not want to eat on children only lasts a few days to a week and the child's appetite will improve by itself or even increase after the cause of the "attack" has been completed (for example, a child is teething, mouth sores, coughs and colds). If the "attack" does not want to eat in children until sustained for weeks or even months, it is necessary to do further examination whether there are certain diseases that have not been diagnosed and has not been resolved that caused it. You should immediately bring your child to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
