How To Ensure Typhus Is Completely Healed?
Hello … I want to ask … I was sick with typhus and hospitalized for about 13 days then the doctor said go home … but I felt there was not much change in my illness … and I got hot and shivering at home … then went for treatment the doctor was given medicine and I felt I was better … all I asked was how to ensure that this typhus really was no longer in my body … did I check my blood or urine again … I was worried about relapse again … thanks …
Good evening, thanks for the question
Symptoms of typhoid fever include fever up and down, especially in the afternoon and evening with the temperature pattern will increase every day. High fever can occur continuously (continuous fever) until the second week. After 2 weeks in the course of this disease can still be found symptoms of fever for up to 4 weeks with a frequency that is less frequent. Other complaints in the form of headaches, gastrointestinal disorders in the form of constipation or diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and bloody bowel, can also occur muscle pain and aches, coughing, no appetite, and insomnia. In this case treatment with antibiotics can be given for 2-3 weeks as long as there are symptoms.
Re-laboratory examination can be done in the third or fourth week using blood, feces, or urine samples. On blood tests can be done serology re-examination to assess whether there is a decrease in titer.
In addition to medication, supportive treatment is also needed to help the healing process, which includes:
1. Maintain adequate fluid intake.
2. A nutritionally balanced diet, soft consistency, enough calories and protein, low in fiber.
3. Consumption of medicines regularly and thoroughly.
Consult with a doctor to evaluate the treatment that has been undertaken.
That's all, hope you can help
