How To Deal With Typhus That Never Healed?
Hello doctor, I want to ask. I have been suffering from typhus for more than 3 weeks, for treatment I have only done outpatient treatment by taking the antibiotic chloramphenicol from the doctor for 2 weeks, from the dosage given 250mg up to now increased by 500mg. During these 3 weeks the symptoms have decreased a little but have not significantly improved 100%. In addition I also booster a variety of herbs such as worm supplements (vermin), honey tipes, brewed green water, palm juice. Because the duration of the pain is longer than before makes me worry. Is this reasonable or not? If there is no other solution for this treatment? Where I just want to be treated at home just deemed not to have health insurance to be admitted to the hospital. Thanks in advance
